1177 B C Book Summary/Review:

"In 1177 B.C., marauding groups known only as the "Sea Peoples" invaded Egypt. The pharaoh's army and navy managed to defeat them, but the victory so weakened Egypt that it soon slid into decline, as did most of the surrounding civilizations. After centuries of brilliance, the civilized world of the Bronze Age came to an abrupt and cataclysmic end. Kingdoms fell like dominoes over the course of just a few decades. No more Minoans or Mycenaeans. No more Trojans, Hittites, or Babylonians. The thriving economy and cultures of the late second millennium B.C., which had stretched from Greece to Egypt and Mesopotamia, suddenly ceased to exist, along with writing systems, technology, and monumental architecture. But the Sea Peoples alone could not have caused such widespread breakdown. How did it happen? In this major new account of the causes of this "First Dark Ages," Eric Cline tells the gripping story of how the end was brought about by multiple interconnected failures, ranging from invasion and revolt to earthquakes, drought, and the cutting of international trade routes. Bringing to life the vibrant multicultural world of these great civilizations, he draws a sweeping panorama of the empires and globalized peoples of the Late Bronze Age and shows that it was their very interdependence that hastened their dramatic collapse and ushered in a dark age that lasted centuries. A compelling combination of narrative and the latest scholarship, 1177 B.C. sheds new light on the complex ties that gave rise to, and ultimately destroyed, the flourishing civilizations of the Late Bronze Age-and that set the stage for the emergence of classical Greece"--

It was a Minoan city that had been conquered by Thutmose III around 1477 BC. The city had been known as Avaris, capital city of the Hyksos, until it was captured by Thutmose’s ancestor Kamose around 1550 BC. #2 The Hyksos were a group of Semites

This dissertation clarifies eclipses by making close-ups with Stellarium and utilizing screenshots made from it. Thus, here comes new refined information for the New Babylonian period. The riddle of the clay board VAT 4956 has now been solved. Israeli scholars have come to the assumption that there was a solar eclipse during the conquest of the land of Joshua in Canaan. Their research also exceeded the generally considered "news threshold." If there was an eclipse at the time, can it be

The author examines current Egyptological evidence and argues that it supports the biblical record concerning Israel in Egypt. Drawing on evidence from recent excavations in the Nile Delta, extra-biblical texts, inscriptions, artefacts, and recent infra-red satellite photographs, he provides a reconstruction of the Israelite sojourn, defends the plausibility of the Joseph story, discusses the role of Moses in history, and traces the probable route of the Exodus itself.

In the Homeric Epics, important references to specific autonomous systems and mechanisms of very advanced technology, such as automata and artificial intelligence, as well as to almost modern methods of design and production are included. Even if those features of Homeric science were just poetic concepts (which on many occasions does not explain the astonishing details of design and manufacture, like the ones included in the present volume), they seem to prove that these achievements were well within human capability.

Who wrote the first five books of the Bible? Does it really matter who did? The Books of Moses Revisited explores this question by comparing the covenants of Exodus/Leviticus and Deuteronomy with the inter-state treaties of the late second millennium BC. Some compelling similarities come to light, both in the pattern adopted and in many small details. Lawrence clearly demonstrates this with many examples and diagrams, yet without assuming that readers possess a detailed knowledge of ancient history and

This book is dedicated to science. Scientists are skeptical, we ask: “Is that idea correct? How can I test it?” Then we resolve to gather and analyze data until we show it isn’t or it might be. If we cannot disprove the idea, it survives. No true scientist “believes in science” because he knows science is a process, a process we use to uncover the truth. One cannot have faith in science, but one can believe in the scientific

Perhaps everyone interested in reading, for example, the history of Assyria, Babylon and Egypt, has at some point noticed some references to solar eclipses observed at that distant time. Taking a glance at the chronologies of those peoples, it can be stated that the solar eclipses observed cannot be found in the reign periods of those kings. The Author has discovered this scientific vacuum and he has considered it to be an appropriate opportunity to specify the chronologies of the

Why are Bible translations so different from each other in places? Don't Bible translators know whether it was peacocks or baboons that King Solomon brought into Israel? Why has "sapphire" been replaced by "lapis lazuli" in some more modern versions? What animal provided the leather for the tabernacle? A badger? A sea cow? Or did the term in question simply mean "leather"? Can archaeology tell us what David's harp looked like? What is the evidence for leprosy in Bible times?
