31. Radiocarbon Dating and Egyptian Chronology [SIS C&C Review $]
... the XVIIIth, XIXth and XXth Dynasties, including those I have mentioned. As can be seen, the XVIIIth-Dynasty dates are not very numerous, and in most cases they are single dates (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 [11: 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 or less what would be required if the down-dating of the XVIIIth Dynasty proposed by Dr Velikovsky is correct. As far as I have been able to discover, the letter retailing them is genuine, ...
32. On the Placement of Haremhab: A Critique of Gammon [Kronos $]
... Haremhab's tomb in the Valley of the Kings, pointing out its similarities to royal tombs of the Eighteenth Dynasty, there by again attempting to prove a close connection between Haremhab and the Eighteenth Dynasty. For now, I would merely refer the reader to section 3 above, especially reference 10. The application of the argument outlined there to this particular problem should be obvious. As for the placement of Haremhab's tomb, Gammon states: "It is, moreover, located between the tombs of Amenhotep II (No. 35) and Tutankhamun (No. 62), in that part of the Valley of the Kings where the royal tombs of Dynasty XVIII from Thutmose I onwards are found, and some distance from those of Dynasties XIX and XX."(19) Yet, this fact proves nothing. Haremhab's apparent preference for linking himself, even in the afterlife, with Eighteenth Dynasty kings cannot really be used as an effective chronological argument. Otherwise, employing the same logic, we might just as well say that Queen Hatshepsut of the Eighteenth Dynasty belonged to ...

34. Some observations from Jesse Lasken concerning the 'new chronology' [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... unless the new chronologists are prepared to disavow the generally held position of Egyptologists that Akhenaten was despised by subsequent Egyptians, how is it conceivable that the Egyptians would dignify Akhenaten by counting years from the start of his (actually her) reign? Can the new chronologists provide even one other certain example of this dating convention? And how is it that Breasted has an inscription in Ancient Records of Egypt 3: 32B dated to the 8th year of Horemheb when Akhenaten seems to have ruled for at least seventeen years? And why does Tutankhamun, who also seems to have followed Akhenaten, have low year dates? The theory that year 59 of Horemheb means the 59th year after Akhenaten began to rule is nothing but sheer fantasy dictated by a need to make things fit into a chronology that is fundamentally flawed. It has absolutely no independent evidentiary basis. To help matters along, I shall offer the correct resolution of the two problems discussed above. Of course, my explanation will require the total abandonment of both the new and conventional chronologies because, for reasons I ...
35. Egyptian Astronomy [Maverick Science Website]
... maverick science.com Artists menu Home Saturn Theory Venus Mars Myth Archaeo- astronomy Evolution History Site Map Home Archaeoastronomy Egyptian Astronomy Egyptian Astronomy Tutankhamun Mask The following web site gathers together various articles on Egyptian astronomical lore. The primary focus is on the astral traditions attested in the Pyramid Texts, these being the oldest body of texts to survive from antiquity. As is evident from the extensive literature on the subject, the identification of the various celestial bodies described in the Pyramid Texts is fraught with difficulties. Authorities rarely agree on the identifications in question, and where agreement is found there are grave problems with the interpretations offered. There are several reasons for this situation, including the obscurity of the language employed in the texts themselves and the fact that at the time the Pyramid Texts were composed astronomy itself did not yet exist — thus systematic observations and scientifically rigorous descriptions of the various celestial bodies and constellations are not to be found. In order to achieve a satisfactory understanding of the Egyptian traditions, it is instructive to compare them with the astral traditions from Mesopotamia and elsewhere ...

... [On February 25, 1964, Dr. Ralph wrote to Velikovsky, informing him of the following results*: U. of Pa. Lab. No. Name Age Calc. with 5568 Half-Life Age Calc. with 5730 Half-Life P-726 Wood from coffin of Tutankhamun, 18th Dynasty 1030 50 B.C. 1120 52 B.C. P-725 Pieces of wood from Cheops Boat 2600 60 B.C. 2740 62 B.C. She noted that the dates calculated with the 5730 half-life are the preferred ones, and that, according to Zaki Iskander, the historical date for P-726 is 1343 B.C. She further wrote that ? Since we prefer to release only series of C-14 dates rather than one or two isolated ones, I have included a list and a graph of other C-14 dates for samples from Egypt which have been published previously.? *The letter is not reprinted here owing to the objection of the author. ...

... Furtwängler as to the relative age of the Geometric and the Mycenaean ware (Olympia)? Or the age of the temple in the megaron of the Tiryns palace-is it Greek or Mycenaean? Or to investigate the relative age of Gordion tumuli and of Hittite relics of the Empire period? I could enlarge the list by many other cases. (Ahiram ? s tomb dated to 13th, 10th, and 7th centuries is one of such cases. Ivory of the 9th century [Samaria and, presumably, of 14th century [tomb of Tutankhamun, also of Nimrud and Megiddo is a very suitable material for tests). Is not the find of a piece of wood from under Alisar III fortress wall that came out 800 years too recent (W. F. Libby, Radiocarbon Dating, 1952, pp. 71 and 102) by itself an invitation to undertake a survey of all debated and unsolved chronological problems where datings differ by centuries? The problem of the so-called Dark Ages in the Near East, for five centuries following -1200 could be greatly illuminated, also ...
38. Chronology of the Kings of Judah and Israel [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... Aram and Israel/Ahab/Jehoshaphat 715/714 This is the 14th year of Hezekiah (battle with Sennacherib) Based on this revision I pinpointed Gammon's revision of the 18th and 19th dynasties in Egypt to the year 966, with the invasion of Thutmose III in Judah (SIS Review, special issue 1977/78, Vol. 2, No. 3). The result follows: 1057/1032 Ahmose 887/871 Amenhotep IV 1032/1011 Amenhotep I 873/871 Smenkhkare 1011/999 Thutmose I 871/862 Tutankhamun 999/988 Thutmose II 865/861 Ay 988/933 Thutmose III 8621853 Horemheb 987/967 Hatshepsut 853 Ramses I 9461921 Amenhotep II 8521841 Sethi I 921/913 Thutmose IV 841/777 Ramses II 913/876 Amenhotep III 777/769 Merneptah 769/763 Seti I 966 was the 5th year of Rehoboam, confirming for me the correctness of Gammon's framework. It is interesting to see that the "revised/revised" reign of Merneptah coincides with the "hiatus" period after Jeroboam II of Israel-- ...
39. Out of Egypt [SIS Internet Digest $]
... . Ahmenhotep III married Tiye, their son first became Ahmenhotep IV and then Akhenaten. Akhenaten was Moses, who when banished from Egypt on account of his worship of the Aten in defiance of the priests of Anun, fled to Sinai, taking with him the royal sceptre in the form of a brass serpent, symbol of Pharaonic authority. It was at Mount Sinai that he later received the Ten Commandments- which bear a close resemblance to the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Meanwhile his son Tutankhaten had succeeded Akhenaten as the Pharaoh Tutankhamun. Osman is arguing for the following equations of identity as between Old Testament and Ancient Egyptian names: Old Testament Ancient Egypt David Joseph Tuthmosis III Yuya (chief minister to Tuthmosis IV and Amenhotep III) Ephraim/Joseph of Arimathea Solomon Aye (son of Yuya and father of Aaron) Amenhotep III (who married Sitamun and later Tiye) Moses Amenhotep IV/Akhenaten (who married Nefertiti) Miriam, Moses' sister/Mary, mother of Jesus Joshua/Jesus Mary Magdalene Nefertiti Tutankhameun (who married Ankhsenpa-aten) Ankhsenpa-aten To ...
40. The Amarna Coregency Controversy [SIS Internet Digest $]
... and Tiye carrying out acts of worship to Amun. Additionally, a badly damaged section shows the cartouche of A4, with A3 and Tiye holding hands. All three are together, and the depicted closeness and physical contact between A3 and Tiye would be most unusual if one of the pair were dead and the other alive. Again, the suggestion is that A3 was alive while A4 was ruling. The el-Amarna letters have bearing also. These begin in year 27 of A3, and continue until (probably) the early years of Tutankhamun. Why are the early ones sent to A3 at Amarna? Few could read Akkadian, so the first action on arrival would be to translate the item and prepare a papyrus for presentation to the king. The original would be put into storage. So one would expect the early A3 letters to have been located at Memphis or Thebes. This suggests that A3 was already based at Amarna at this point of time, or at very least that the court business was being conducted from there. In Akhenaten's year 12 a great ...
