21. The Amarna Age - an Introduction [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... a male heir, was the father himself. Had Akhenaten become desperate to have a male heir and so was attempting this with all women with a claim to royalty? The tomb known as KV55 in the Valley of the Kings, dated to the Amarna period, has many unusual features. In overall design it is very like that of Tutankhamun, and the possibility exists of other tombs of this era in the same part of the valley. The funeral mask and various other items appear to have been first fashioned for a female, but then reused for a male at a later date. The woman in question might be Kiya, the second wife of Akhenaten (after Nefertiti ...
22. Radiocarbon Dating and Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... in the sense that they refer to different samples): we don't have the great clusters of dates provided by the latest study, which are for identical or similar samples from the same structure. Nevertheless, there are one or two interesting examples, particularly the slightly scandalous story surrounding the two dates for short-lived samples taken from the tomb of Tutankhamun, which have a long history. This has been told in Pensée : unfortunately, the dates have never been published, but were mentioned in a letter from the British Museum in answer to an enquiry. The dates are on the order of 900-850 bc, which, if you leave them uncorrected, would be more ...
23. Pot Pourri [Journals] [SIS Review]
... doubt, the producers gave the impression that the mass Canaanite' desertion of Avaris took place during the reign of Ramesses II, whereas such escapees would have had at least a 300 year head start over this pharaoh - and if it was not a 300 year old memory' that washed away pharaoh's chariots, what was it? Who Killed Tutankhamun?In Who Killed Tutankhamun? .. . Revealed (Channel 5, 9 October, 2002), two Utah policemen, Greg Cooper and Mike King, attempted to provide an answer but added little beyond speculation to what was already known. The very first sentence set the tone, identifying a specific day and year for the death ...
24. ASH (Continued) [Journals] [Kronos]
... of a Dutch chemist (dated April 19, 1973) to Mr. A. Bruce Mainwaring, at the time coordinator of a Carbon 14 project sponsored by the Foundation for Studies of Modern Science (FOSMOS). Mr. Mainwaring was informed that the British Museum had just denied having ever made "measurements on material from the tomb of Tutankhamun". This was a direct contradiction of test results reported by Dr. 1. E. S. Edwards - the keeper of Egyptology at the British Museum - in a letter (dated April 6, 1971) addressed to Dr. Henry N. Michael at the University Museum, University of Pennsylvania. Edwards' letter contained a ...
25. Michael Carmichael: Censing the God: Psychoactive Substances in Ancient Egypt [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... and researcher. One episode focused on the prevalence of blue water lily imagery in Egyptian art and culture, and it was this he concentrated in his talk. Michael ran through a series of slides, almost exclusively from Egypt's controversial Amarna period. This began with the pharaoh Akhenaten around 1378 BC and included the 12-year reign of the boy king Tutankhamun. Tiles, friezes and jewellery from this era frequently portrayed not just the psychoactive mandrake plant, but also the blue water lily. Drugs such as mandrake would have been burnt on incense holders and the fumes absorbed through the nasal passage. The Sacred Weeds programme proposed that the blue water lily had been used as a major stimulant both ...
26. Date of Amarna Letters from Tyre and a Possible Date for Carthage [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... have no reservations in rejecting both the total of one hundred and forty-three years as true elapsed time and the late dating of so many of the Amarna Letters because of the vague form of their address. While some of the letters may date fractionally later than the death of Akhnaton, none can be dated later than the first few years of Tutankhamun- otherwise they would have gone to Thebes when the capital returned there. An attempt to date the letters from Abimilki of Tyre leads to the conclusion that they belong to the time of Azira (Hazael of Damascus), the beginning of whose reign is normally dated from 841 B.C . From Ancient Records of Assyria and Babylonia ...
27. Problems for Rohl's New Chronology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... generation, this puts Cadmus at c.1010-985 BC. The discovery of cylinder seals with cuneiform inscriptions in the palace of Cadmus at Thebes has been taken to confirm the Herodotean tradition concerning the origin of the Greek alphabet. Some of the seals are datable to the reign of Burnaburrias II of the Kassite Dynasty, a contemporary of Akhenaten and Tutankhamun whom (on other grounds) I would date 1020-990 BC. Thus the historical evidence, the archaeological evidence and the New Chronology all fit, and the gap of 550 years in the received chronology between Cadmus and the earliest remains of the Greek alphabet is reduced to 200-250 years. The latter is a reasonable span of time given that ...
28. The Amarna Royal Tomb [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... recent innovation, the first occurrence dated to the time of Thutmose 4. Finally it should be noted that the burial equipment is of an entirely traditional style, including a Canopic chest and various statues. Many of these items are quite incompatible with Atenist religious practice. There are also, unsurprisingly, many points of similarity with items found with Tutankhamun. The bodies and most of the equipment was removed from the royal tomb at Amarna and move south to Thebes at a later date, probably within the reign of Tutankhamun. ...
29. Oedipus and Akhnaton [Journals] [Pensee]
... almost identical; in fact, on placing an X-ray of one skull on that of the other, there is virtually complete conformity. The cephalic index also demonstrates that the type of skull (i .e . brachycephalic) is the same in each case. Only in the measurements of the facial skeleton is there some discrepancy, indicating that Tutankhamun had a slightly narrower face than Smenkhare. Even the measurements of other bones of the skeleton show fairly close conformity." (Antiquity, 46 [February, 1972], 10.) Writing in the same issue of Antiquity, H.W . Fairman observes that, " . . . when one couples the rarity of the ...
30. Open Forum, chaired by David Fairbairn [Journals] [SIS Review]
... massive scale but as astronomy is my primary tool, I can understand why the astronomy on the pre-conquest people is the same as the astronomy of New Kingdom of Egypt and the astronomy of the Crusades and I started reading the history of the Crusades, and I can recognise the Hittites and the Peoples of the Sea and Ramesses the Great and Tutankhamun and that bothers me. I need to read the history of the Crusades to find out which New Kingdom pharaoh is the biblical Solomon. I have to read the history of the Crusades to find out what really happened to Tutankhamun. It is not only a question of Emmet who started the process by dropping two millennia, then we ...
