Neither comparative stratigraphy and archaeology (architecture, pottery, small finds etc) nor palaeography and the evaluation of original historiographical source material has been applied to check possible Asian alter egos of the Hyksos ... of the Hyksos. When they decided to adopt the scimitar they chose the Old-Akkadian model, which was 'state of the art' more than seven centuries earlier. By taking the stratigraphical contemporaneity of Hyksos and Old-Akkadians into account the scimitars belong to one and the same nation and the mysteries disappear. Bronze scimitar from EB IV Telloh between 2500 and 2400 (Yadin ...

On the whole, however, they would correspond to only brief interruptions in sedimentation, and so be in the nature of a time lapse rather than indicate the loss of complete stratigraphical zones and stages.

We are concerned solely with the palaeontological sphere to which Stepanov has transferred the term neocatastrophism. By the nature of things he digs deep into our stratigraphic conceptions and methods, so that a presentation of these issues to a geological forum ought to be wholly relevant. The term neocatastrophism seems acceptable so long as it is made clear ...

... attempt to erase historical biblical narratives from memory as much as I disagree with both Thompson and Biran's fundamentalist chronology.

We can compare the stratigraphies of Mari and Hazor (see Table 6).

Bronze Age strata looked like -23rd century Old-Akkadian material, whereas much in Israel's Hyksos strata of -1600 did [7,8,9,10.

Rees replied that pottery styles alone were not sufficient evidence without ... inferred from the 'known' chronology! A significantly lacking stratum at sites such as these is that of the Persians who historically came immediately before the Hellenist culture. In the relevant stratigraphical position instead are found the Old Babylonians in the south and the Middle Assyrians in the north. Heinsohn therefore equated these with Persian satrapies and the Old Akkadians-Hyksos would then fall into ... between that stratum and its underlying one, the lower stratum of each site must also be of an identical culture B.
