The Australian ^ | 7-18-2004
50 ancient tombs uncovered From correspondents in Athens July 18, 2004 ARCHEOLOGISTS have discovered 50 tombs dating back to the late Minoan period, around 1400 BC, and containing a number of artifacts on the Greek island of Crete, ANA news agency reported today. The tombs were part of the once powerful ancient city of Kydonia, which was destroyed at the time but later rebuilt. The oldest among them contained bronze weapons, jewellery and vases and are similar to the tombs of fallen soldiers of the Mycenaean type from mainland Greece, said the head of the excavations, Maria Vlazaki.

Journal of Archaeological Science, Volume 25, Issue 3, March 1998, Pages 279-289 ^ | 13 July 1997 | Gregory A. Zielinski, Mark S. Germani
Determining a reliable calendrical age of the Santorini (Minoan) eruption is necessary to place the impact of the eruption into its proper context within Bronze Age society in the Aegean region. The high-resolution record of the deposition of volcanically produced acids on polar ice sheets, as available in the SO42-time series from ice cores (a direct signal), and the high-resolution record of the climatic impact of past volcanism inferred in tree rings (a secondary signal) have been widely used to assign a 1628/1627 age to the eruption. The layer of ice in the GISP2 (Greenland) ice core corresponding to...

Aramaic was the language of Semitic peoples throughout the ancient Near East. It was the language of the Assyrians, Chaldeans, Hebrews and Syrians. Aram and Israel had a common ancestry and the Hebrew patriarchs who were of Aramaic origin maintained ties of marriage with the tribes of Aram. The Hebrew patriarchs preserved their Aramaic names and spoke in Aramaic.The term Aramaic is derived from Aram, the fifth son of Shem, the firstborn of Noah. See Gen. 10:22. The descendants of Aram dwelt in the fertile valley, Padan-aram also known as Beth Nahreen.The Aramaic language in Padan-aram remained pure, and in...

The find includes three fortifications built in the area of Tharu, an ancient city which stood on a branch of the Nile that has long since dried up, a ministry statement said. The battlements stand on the ancient Horus Road, a vital commercial and military artery from ancient Egypt to Asia. The discoveries,...

Near a mortuary temple from the 12th century B.C., archaeologists had uncovered a grid of shallow trenches, which they guessed was the base of a workers' hut. Bietak, head of the Institute of Egyptology at Vienna University, recognized the floor plan as that of the four-room houses used by almost all Israelites from the 12th to the sixth century B.C.

[T]he exclusively masculine epithets referring to this individual in the same tomb and on a now-vanished block at Memphis, confirm that we are dealing with a man - as distinct from the pharaoh-queen Ankh(et)kheperure Neferneferuaten... Contrary to Ancient Egyptian custom, Smenkhkare is not presented under a coronation name and a birth name in his two cartouches, but under two coronation names. The explanation for this curious fact seems to me clear: both his royal names were composed on the occasion of his coronation. He therefore must have had another name beforehand...

At the American Geophysical Union annual meeting in December, one archaeologist presented research that suggests that climate change affected the way cultures developed and collapsed in the cradle of civilization ó ancient Mesopotamia ó more than 8,000 years ago. Archaeologists have found evidence for a mass migration from the more temperate northern Mesopotamia to the arid southern region around 6400 B.C. For the previous 1,000 years, people had been cultivating the arable land in northern Mesopotamia, using natural rainwater...

Remains of an ancient civilization discovered in the depths of the Northern sea While some scientists spend all their time and efforts in search of Atlantis, others have already discovered remains of an ancient civilization that had existed on the same territory as present-day Northern sea. With the help of modern technology, archaeologists were able to get a better glimpse of the ancient world. Approximately 10 000 years ago the entire bottom of the Northern sea had been a blossoming valley, inhabited by ancestors of modern-day Europeans. Scientists from the Birmingham University were able to reach such conclusion after reconstructing...

They had reason to think they were in the presence of a breathtaking discovery. Or at the least, they were on to something more than 20,000 years old that would throw American archaeology into further turmoil over its most contentious issue: when did people first reach America, and who were they?

omewhere in the imagination, at an intersection of the idealized Golden Age and mankind's descent into manifest imperfection, existed the island civilization of Atlantis. This realm of divine origin was ruled from a splendid metropolis in the distant ocean. Its empire, described by a philosopher as "larger than Libya and Asia combined," enjoyed prosperity and great power.In time, driven by overweening ambition, a common theme in antiquity and not unheard of today, Atlantis set out to conquer lands of the Mediterranean. But in a terrible day and night of floods and earthquakes, Atlantis was swallowed by the sea, sinking into...

Did Asteroids and Comets Turn the Tides of Civilization? By Mike Baillie The heart of humanity seems at times to have lost its cadence, the rhythmic beat of history collapsing into impotent chaos. Wars raged. Pestilence spread. Famine reigned. Death came early and hard. Dynasties died, and civilization flickered. Such a time came in the sixth century A.D. The Dark Ages settled heavily over Europe. Rome had been beaten back from its empire. Art and science stagnated. Even the sun turned its back.

From the depths came jumbled, mixed bits of crystalline and melted rock that can be dated, as well as marine deposits, brine and other evidence of an ancient comet or asteroid that slammed into once-shallow waters near the Delmarva Peninsula.

Assertions that Plato just made up the story are a modern invention. : ) Attempts to place Atlantis somewhere besides west of Gibraltar are also modern inventions. Looking for it in Antarctica, or Anatolia, or Santorini, the Andes, the South China Sea, and a host of other places amounts to looking on the sidewalk for the keys you lost in the tavern because the light is better. Regardless of whether the minutaie of the story are just made up -- as I suspect they are, in the same way Herodotus made up conversations in his account of the Persian wars -- there are stories of universal flood found throughout the world.

Settegast cites the example of Catal Huyuk, which was abandoned circa 5500 BC after a 3000 year occupation. The town started full blown on the site, indicating that the culture developed elsewhere. The probable explanation is that its ancestors lived on the now-flooded continental shelf. During glaciation the sea levels were hundreds of feet lower. The lower the altitude (other things being equal), the warmer the climate, and of course the seas would be a handy source of food. There is much more in her book about this, and beyond it.

The best half-book on Atlantis.

Thanks for the book read ping..
Spent some time at the Catal Huyuk dig sites chat forum.

wonder if Mary spent some time there?

anyhoo...ya...Huyuk pops up out of nowhere...and their bulding teired condo's for hundreds/to near thousands from the get go.
aggriarian..and having cattle pens..

some strange social behaviour....ie..burry dead family members under the main floor of the house generationally.

How many mud/mortar, small rock/stone/mortar habitations exist from 12,000 BCE earlier..that are obliterated by rising ocean levels....or other catastrophism mechanisms.

still the crowd at the Catal Huyuk site margin these people as Neolithic doofus's...just a bit smarter than the cave crowd.

kinda limiting and dissapointing.

The academic crowd.....with their stunted imagination?

Read a few book reviews on Mary...

Seems her perspectives on form and ident ..occuring at the end of period interval..with new forms appearing..is intimidating to some scholars.

kinda of..."No Mary....Mankind is stupid.....getting smarter over time"...not..."Smart..get stupid..then get smart again"

Mary's got it right....too bad for ther University book/chalk board king.

[reprised from a GGG topic] Zangger discusses the long history (circa 1885, much earlier than I'd thought) of the "Thera was Atlantis" idea, and beginning on page 44 cuts it to ribbons. It should be noted that Zangger has his own book about what was and wasn't Atlantis. ;') Check out pp 48-49 for a summary of the problems with the idea, and an amusing catalog of other things attributed to the eruption.

I bought this book in May, and having started it up tonight with some cherry picking, it looks like something I'm going to read in entire.

Experts said the documents and pieces Obeidi gave the United States were the critical information and parts to restart a nuclear weapons program, and would have saved Saddam's regime several years and as much as hundreds of millions of dollars for research. David Albright, who was a U.N. nuclear weapons inspector in Iraq in the 1990s, said inspectors "understood that Iraq probably hid centrifuge documents, may have had components, and so it is very important that those items be found." ...Obeidi said he felt unsafe in Iraq after the U.S.-led invasion and that he was getting pressure from different corners of the country. He also said other Iraqi scientists were watching to see if he was safe after he cooperated with the U.S. government. Now that he and his family are safely out of Iraq, Obeidi said he believes other scientists would come forward with other components of Iraq's weapons program.

reprised from a couple of FR topics -- from "The True Believer":
Hatred is the most accessible and comprehensive of all unifying agents. It pulls and whirls the individual away from his own self, makes him oblivious of his weal and future, frees him of jealousies and self-seeking. He becomes an anonymous particle with a craving to fuse and coalesce with his like into one flaming mass... Mass movements can rise and spread without belief in a God, but never without belief in a devil... Common hatred unites the most heterogeneous elements. To share a common hatred, with an enemy even, is to infect him with a feeling of kinship, and thus sap his powers of resistance... We have it from Hitler... that the genius of a great leader consists oin concentrating all hatred on a single foe. [pp 85-87]

Emmet Sweeney is convinced that Francis Bacon wrote Shakespeare's plays. Here's an example of his reasoning, or if not his stuff that he finds reasonable. This scares me a little, because Sweeney is also interested in Velikovsky.
The Bacon family anecdote in Merry Wives of Windsor
by Emmet Sweeney
Here a clear reference to a Bacon family anecdote about Sir Nicholas, Francis' father, recounted in his book of jests, the Apophthegms (published 1625), is found in Merry Wives of Windsor. Of course, it's possible the author of the plays heard this one in a tavern. Or Francis Bacon inserted it as a signature.
By these standards of proof (and there are pages of this kind of thing) I could prove that I authored Shakespeare's plays after I invent a time machine in the future. :'D Hey, don't laugh -- my future self visited yesterday and TOLD me this was going to happen.

But what we haven't had, as far as I'm aware, is an Arabic Hamlet. Until now. The idea may seem strange, but then other cultures are often in a better position to interpret Shakespeare, because in terms of social structure their societies are often closer to the Shakespearean world than our own.

Stratford-upon-Avon, England : The church where England's most celebrated playwright William Shakespeare was baptised and buried is being eaten away by dry rot and an infestation of death watch beetles. Repairs to the crumbling parapet outside the 800-year-old church in Stratford-upon-Avon are almost complete. But other vital restoration work is still ongoing. And it's feared there won't be enough money to finish the job. The cost of restoration is expected to hit the 150,000-pound mark (US$250,000) -50 percent higher than estimated. But friends of the church say falling visitor numbers are making it difficult to raise the funds. Church Trustees...

The words of Maj.-Gen. Raymond T. Odierno of the U.S. 4th Infantry Division may well be the final epitaph for Saddam Hussein. The general said, "He was just caught like a rat." This is what tyrants are: despicable, petty human beings. And when denuded of the ill-gotten power with which they terrorize the weak, the innocent and the defenceless, they are unmasked as slinking cowards. As Saddam's dreadful image filled our television screens, I reached for my copy of the complete works of Shakespeare. It is instinctive to seek the Bard's advice, comfort, insight or wisdom on any situation, for...

Henceforth there would be no more angst.

The picture of the Earl of Southampton, featuring a figure with long, black curly hair, pursed red lips, an earring and a slender right hand, has prompted speculation in British media that Shakespeare was gay. "He is wearing perfectly fashionable male attire of the day, but the earring and the hair are effeminate and unusual for the 1590s," the painting's owner Alec Cobbe told Reuters....

Out of the Ashes: The Resurrection of Saddam Hussein Out of the Ashes: The Resurrection of Saddam Hussein
by Andrew Cockburn
Patrick Cockburn

The Clinton administration had left the Bush approach (apart from an offhand remark by the President-elect, hurriedly renounced, to the effect that normal relations with Saddam were possible). Sanctions were maintained as rigorously as ever. In 1993, Vice President Al Gore announced plans to seek a United Nations investigation of war crimes by the Iraqi regime, though nothing further was ever heard of the idea. When details emerged of a scheme by elements of the Iraqi security service, in association with a gang of whisky smugglers, to assassinate ex-president George Bush during a visit to Kuwait in 1993, Clinton fired off twenty-three cruise missiles at Iraqi intelligence headquarters in Baghdad, one of which went astray and killed Leilah Attar, Iraq's leading female artist. In secret, Clinton reaffirmed Bush's directive to the CIA to unseat Saddam. [ p 165 ]]

Here's an older (much older) title they may also enjoy. I got it off the $1 rack at Argos (a local used bookstore that's been there for years, various owners) a couple of years ago, on the strength of Shipman's discussion of Halton Arp. It's well-written, not obtuse at all, and covers Arp because of his then-recently proffered dissident view regarding quasars. Shipman thought Arp's view would become significant; it is, but Arp himself wound up in de facto exile in Europe, unable to find work or even telescope time in the US.

The Linear B Tablets and Mycenaean Social, Political, and Economic Organization
Lesson 25, The Prehistoric Archaeology of the Aegean ^ | Revised: Friday, March 18, 2000 | Trustees of Dartmouth College

Posted on 08/29/2004 8:19:46 PM PDT by SunkenCiv

KO-RE-TE, PO-RO-KO-RE-TE [koreter, prokoreter] -- Such officials are known at both Knossos and Pylos. The titles bear a suspiciously close resemblance to the Latin terms curator and procurator ("guardian" and "manager, imperial officer/governor" respectively). The Linear B evidence suggests that the koreter was a local official in charge of one of the sixteen major administrative units within the Pylian kingdom, and the prokoreter was evidently his deputy.

A Proper Dating of the Linear B Tablets
by Jesse E. Lasken
ESOP 1993 v 22
While there is general agreement that the language of the Linear B tablets was Greek, many words lack clear cut Greek etymologies and have not been satisfactorily translated. This has led to suggestions that the tablets may contain a sort of jargon combining several languages. I will demonstrate the equivalence of the Mycenaean terms ko-re-te, po-ko-re-te, e-qu-ta, and ra-wa-ke-ta [with] the Latin terms curator, procurator, equite, and legatus and discuss other evidence suggesting that Latin was included in the Linear B tablets. I am not disputing that Mycenaean is a Greek tongue; however, the scribes who prepared these tablets were also using, to a limited extent, certain Latin terms and constructions.
Lasken is often wrong, sez Ev Cochrane, and I have to agree in certain cases (I won't give you one example Cochrane cited, it's too far gone :'), but he seems to be onto something here. He claims that some Linear B tablets contain Latin terms, and must date after circa 207 BC. This is not to say that they all must, nor does it take into account the fact that Latin is older than this and the loan vocabulary could have resulted from the extensive commerce, but not so much older that the existence of the Greek Dark Age isn't shown to be imaginary. :') Notice that the Dartmouth paper just mentions a couple of these as suspicious, but offers no critique of it.

"Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point in the universe. This idea is not novel... We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who derives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians... Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic.? If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic - and this we know it is, for certain - then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature."

Ancient Humans Took Up Coastal Life
125,000 Years Ago, Study Suggests

AP
May 3, 2000
Scientists say they have discovered the earliest well-dated example of an oyster bar: a fossil reef on Africa's Red Sea coast where ancestral humans apparently waded out to collect oysters, clams and crabs some 125,000 years ago... A site in South Africa also shows signs that ancient humans lived along a coast and harvested shellfish. The researchers noted evidence that this site is 10,000 years younger than the Eritrea site.
Despite the attempts to spin the results by folks quoted in the article, this is the evidence for a spread of a maritime culture into Africa from the Middle East.
The Ancient Tomb of a Young Child
Discover
November 1998
Now a Belgian archeological team has found the skeleton of a child in the Nile Valley of southern Egypt that may be as much as 80,000 years old. The site may well be Africa's oldest intentional burial... Pierre Vermeersch from the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium and his colleagues discovered the skeleton at Taramsa Hill. For hundreds of thousands of years, humans and more ancient hominids visited Taramsa to make stone tools, and Vermeersch had been tracking the progress of this industry... Though many stone tools were found near the body, none can be clearly associated with the burial. "We are in a place where they made hundreds of thousands of tools," says Vermeersch, "so everywhere, everything is full of artifacts." ...The slender bones and rounded forehead are clearly those of a modern human. The teeth and skull also resemble those of equally old human remains in both East Africa and the Middle East and suggest a connection, Vermeersch says, between these two populations.
On the way into Africa, a nomadic family experienced the loss of a child...

I've been reading this for a few weeks, got it out of the library. The review link points to what I believe is a retitled, perhaps revised, edition of the book.
