1. The Tutankhamun Deception (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2002:1 (Jul 2002) Home | Issue Contents Book Review The Tutankhamun Deception: The True Story of the Mummy's Curse by Gerald O'Farrell Sidgwick & Jackson, 2001. Paul Standring The author's thesis is that Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon discovered and entered the tomb of Tutankhamun up to 8 years before the discovery was announced and that they systematically looted it during this period; that they stage-managed the discovery' to conceal the absence of most of the funerary artefacts and to pre-empt critical investigation into their activities; that they discovered papyri whose contents were so damaging to Christianity and the existing order that these had to be suppressed; and that ...
2. Tutankhamun radiocarbon dates [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1996:1 Home | Issue Contents NOTES AND QUERIES Tutankhamun radiocarbon dates Q. In the introduction to Peoples of the Sea, Dr I Velikovsky states that in the spring of 1971, the British Museum Library processed reed and seed from the tomb of Tutankhamun. The latter showed the age of -899 and the former of -846. The results were not, apparently, published but I have not read in any journal or publication that the dates were refuted or denied as being other than accurate. It has always puzzled me that no steps have been taken to run a double-blind dating project on artefacts from the days of Tutankhamun and of Ramesses ...
3. The Tutankhamun Prophecies, and, The Lost Tomb of Viracocha, by Maurice Cotterell (Reviewed) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2001:2 (Jan 2002) Home | Issue Contents The Tutankhamun Prophecies by Maurice Cotterell Hodder Headline, London, 1999, £18 99 The Lost Tomb of Viracocha Headline, London 2001, £18 99 Reviewed by Alasdair Beal Maurice Cotterell is an engineer who worked out a theory to explain the Sun' s cycles of behaviour while at Cranfield University in the 1980s and his ideas on this are outlined in an appendix to The Tutankhamun Prophecies. (This amounts to about a quarter of the book.) In Cotterell's model, the differential rotation rates of the Sun's equator and poles lead to 12 different monthly bursts of radiation through ...
4. Velikovsky and the El-Amarna period [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and from Greek legends and point to about 680BC for the end of the El-Amarna period. Although some fine-tuning is required, the final conclusions do not contradict previous studies on Assyrian history, indicating the end of this period at the end of the 8th century BC. Introduction Conventional history places the time of Amenhotep III, Akhenaten, Smenkhkare, Tutankhamun and Ay in the 14th century BC [1 ]. Akhenaten built himself a new residence and called it Akhetaten, now known as Tel El-Amarna. It lasted only about 30 years; in his 4th year Tutankhamun moved the residence back to Thebes.[2 ] In Tel El-Amarna a big collection of letters was found and it turned ...
5. Tutankhamen and Assyrian Art [Articles]
... as of now, the way art history is reconstructed, since it is based on historical reconstruction, on the absolute dates presented by conventional chronology, the Lion Gate of Mycenae exists in a kind of splendid isolation. Likewise, what I show you today, has a similar aspect to it. It is a chest from the tomb of Tutankhamun with painted scenes on both sides, I will show this to you momentarily. While the art of Tutankhamun has been admired and while it has been unprecedentedly received by throngs of people throughout this country in various museum trips, it has been accepted as to its chronological place without question. You see "EXXON sponsors Tutankhamun ,the pharaoh ...
6. The Chronology of the Early Egyptian New Kingdom [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... co-regency is stronger than that presented against it. Assuming, therefore, that year 12 of Akhenaten corresponded with year 38 of Amenhotep Ill, and since the former's highest regnal year- his 17th- was almost certainly his last, Akhenaten's reign can be dated to 848-832 B.C . Since his year 17 was followed by year 1 of Tutankhamun (the wine docket on which "17" has been erased and replaced by "1 " refers to "the estate of Smenkhkare deceased"), it seems probable that Smenkhkare (highest year 3) either predeceased his father-in-law of did not long survive him.15 Tutankhamun's highest regnal year is 10, and his age at the ...
7. The Mysterious Smenkhkare [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... near the start, and in one case -nefer is immediately adjacent to -aten. Since this last form does not match any of the others, is it possible they were in fact reworked twice? The only two possible orthographic forms starting with re from anywhere near this era are Ramesses (too late) and Smenkhkare. So the cartouche under Tutankhamun appears to be that of "Smenkhkare beloved if Akenaten", an intermediate form between the first two of the variations noted at the start of the talk. This would seem to preclude the idea that Nefertiti took over Smekhkare's name after his early death (yet another theory about the complex relationships involved here...). In ...
8. A Chronology for the Eighteenth Dynasty [Journals] [SIS Review]
... no such certainty exists in respect of other reigns of this period. The position is complicated by the vexed question of co-regencies. The 20-year co-regency of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III is beyond dispute but there has not been general agreement about the evidence for co-regencies between Thutmose III and Amenhotep II, Amenhotep III and Akhnaton, Akhnaton and Smenkhkare, and Tutankhamun and Ay. The most contentious is that postulated between Amenhotep III and Akhnaton, which lasted between 8 and 11 years. That between Akhnaton and Smenkhkare is less controversial, although it is not clear for how long the latter survived his father-in-law, if at all. since Thutmose III died four months after his son's succession date (8 ...
9. The Place of Horemheb in Egyptian History [Journals] [SIS Review]
... by over 100 years on the lines proposed by Dr Velikovsky. The position is complicated by the fact that the king lists which have survived from Dynasty XIX ignore the Amarna pharaohs and name Horemheb as the immediate successor of Thutmose IV and Amenhotep III, with Ramesses I and Seti I following Horemheb [4 ]. Since Akhenaten, Smenkhkare, Tutankhamun and Ay are excluded as "uncanonical", it would be reasonable to assume that the Libyan and Ethiopian kings would similarly be omitted from the Abydos and Saqqara king lists had they intervened. No conclusions can therefore be drawn from their absence from these lists. On the other hand, Horemheb as king assumed the prenomen Djeser-khepru-Re' Setep-en-Re ...
10. Radiocarbon Dates for the Eighteenth Dynasty [Journals] [SIS Review]
... published. Yet the replies he received from the various Museum authorities he approached for further tests (and full publication of the results) displayed a degree of faith in the accepted, Sothic based, Egyptian chronology that bordered on utter complacency. In 1964 Velikovsky did succeed in securing the test of a mixed sample of wood from the tomb of Tutankhamun (P . 726). The result given was 1030 50 b.c ., which. corrected by the Suess calibration to c. 1250-1350 B.C ., falls just within the range of the conventional date for Tutankhamun's death. However. as Velikovsky (2 ) and Burgstahler (3 ) have pointed out, the ...
