52. The Pyramid Age, by Emmet J Sweeney (Review) [SIS C&C Review $]
... we find an abundance of evidence to show that the Israelite Exodus was contemporary with the very beginnings of the Pyramid Age, whilst Greece's Heroic or Mycenaean epoch commenced at the same point in time'. Here he identifies the Pharaoh contemporary with Joshua, and shows how 'Greek warriors, fresh from the sack of Troy helped dislodge the Assyrians from the land of the Nile'. Chapter 8 provides a good discussion of dating methods and their weaknesses. The anomalous results from radiocarbon dating are discussed and he quotes those from the tomb of Tutankhamun: 899BC for a kernel and 844BC for a reed mat. Whilst Sweeney notes these are over 400 years too recent for the conventional chronology, he does not add that they are also over 200 years too early for his own revision. Of the traditional divisions of the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages, he says the age of metals properly begins around 1000BC with the Copper Age (wrongly named Early Bronze). Bronze was discovered in the 9th century and then, as smelting techniques developed and improved, iron began to ...
53. Kronos by Robert de Telder (Reviewed) [SIS C&C Review $]
... Essentially, therefore, this is a combination or synthesis of Velikovsky, Herodotus and the Bible, all of which are treated, more or less, as 'revealed truth'. In this way the author makes the Amarna Age (late 18 th Dynasty), which Velikovsky placed in the 9th century, contemporary with the Pyramid Age, which Herodotus placed immediately before the Ethiopian Shabaka (late 8th century). The Amarna Age pharaohs are therefore identified with the pyramid-building 4 th Dynasty. Thus Akhenaten= Cheops; Smenkhkare= Chephren; Tutankhamun= Mycerinus; Ay= Anysis. In support of such controversial identifications the author points to the fact that Cheops, like Akhenaten, was reputed to have closed the nation's temples, whilst the Egyptians of Herodotus' time found it (to quote Herodotus) 'hard to pronounce the names of these pharaohs [Cheops and Chephren'. This damnatio memoriae is linked by de Telder to those placed on Akhenaten and his progeny. The work is professionally produced and looks good (especially the English edition), with copious tables, maps ...

... the dedication of prisoners of war that were killed or maimed. Akhenaten, he claims, put a stop to human sacrifice and even animals were not hunted for pleasure- or at least among the royal household. Does anyone know to what extent the Egyptians practised human sacrifice? It is rarely mentioned in books. Likewise, what about the Near and Middle East- the Assyrians dedicated prisoners of war to their gods but when did human sacrifice come to an end? Later still, Velikovsky claims there was a conflict between Smenkhkare and Tutankhamun and a clash of armies. I have never seen anything like this mentioned in books. Did this really happen? Likewise, he associates the fall of Akhenaten with a great plague. We know that plague broke out in Syria-Palestine and from there it was transported to the Hittite court of Suppiluliumas but what evidence is there of plague in Egypt at the same time? Of course, it is likely that Akhenaten was deposed because of setbacks of some kind and a plague is one reason why that happened. However, a military ...

... W. M. Flinders Petrie, Tell al-Amarna (1894), p. 38.) Further Mr. Gammon has Akhnaton as the father-in-law of Smenkhkare and Tutankhaten whereas Dr. Velikovsky's theory is that he was their father. However Dr. Velikovsky (Oedipus and Akhnaton, p. 108) quoting Glanville, in Bruton, Great Ones of Ancient Egypt, p. 129, writes, "The co-regency between Akhnaton and Smenkhkare has always been assumed..." I think that Ay was the power behind the throne of Tutankhamun and possibly of Smenkhkare as well, causing them to fight and kill each other as suggested by Dr. Velikovsky. It seems to me that most co-regencies in history have ended in a tragic death to one or other of the parties involved. It appears that one must be all-powerful and cannot be happy in a shared power. The only successful co-regency I can think of is William and Mary. I am not in a position to research facts or new material and so can only quote from the S.I.S. Review and Dr ...
58. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... the first of the 'Libyan' pharaohs portrayed in an unmistakeably Amarna style. The 'Ramesside' era, on the contrary, had readopted the traditional canons completely. The Libyan Dynasty was actually Assyrian- a fact illustrated by such names as Osorkon (Ashur-kan), Nemeret (Nimrud), Takelot (Tukulti/Tiglath), and Sosenk (Susa)- and accepted by many authorities, including Sir Flinders Petrie. In Velikovsky's chronology, this first Assyrian period of Egyptian history would have occurred ten years or so after the death of Tutankhamun (c.825 BC), and would have arisen through an invasion of Asiatic epigoni, descendants of warriors who had earlier accompanied Smenkhare in his attack on Thebes (an event portrayed on one of Tutankhamun's decorated chests). Thus the Assyrian Dynasty would have commenced in 815 BC, or shortly afterwards. Where, it will be asked, does Assyrian history record this early invasion of Egypt? Surely the Assyrians would not have forgotten such an important event! Actually, they did not forget it, and the whole episode became entwined ...
59. The 1989 ISIS/SIS Nile Cruise [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... HORIZONS The 1989 ISIS/SIS Nile Cruise The evening of August 2nd 1989 saw a travel-weary group of SIS and ISIS members and friends being swallowed up in the vastness of the Hotel Marriot in Cairo, a little nervous perhaps that they might not find their way out in time to join the cruise ship 'Nile Rhapsody' the following day for their eagerly awaited journey up the Nile. An early morning call at 7.30am, however, ensured that we all met up for a visit to the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities where we perused the Tutankhamun treasures, followed by a quick view of the 'Israel' stele, Akhenaton statues and Old Kingdom material before being whisked off to the sanctuary of the 'Nile Rhapsody', our home for the next ten days. Our main concern, going at that time of year, was that the heat would prove too much for us, and it certainly was extremely hot under the endlessly cloudless skies, but the luxury of an airconditioned boat and airconditioned transport to and from sites not situated right by the water's edge made the heat a ...
60. Dating the Amarna Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... in the wars of the Amarna period (by Aziru of Amurru), and would later have been rebuilt by Ithobaal. Questions from Anthony Rees: I have been involved in some similar research to 'The Amarna Letters and the New Chronology' and am thus interested in comparing my proposed model with that suggested in the above paper. Thus, I am asking for clarification of a number of points: 1. I understand that the Amarna Letters covered about 28-29 years from perhaps the 32nd year of Amenhotep III to the 4th year of Tutankhamun. The total depends on whether there was, or was not, a coregency between Amenhotep III and Akhenaton. The total includes an apparent 9 years for the exploits of Labayu. What chronology for Labayu and the Letters do the two authors propose? Their equation of Labayu= Saul needs their reigns to agree in length. The Bible claims Saul reigned for 40 years (Acts 13:21) with the first two years as an anointed king, backed by God (I Samuel 13:1, I Samuel 15: ...
