The Catastrophic End of the Early Bronze Age – Egypt – part 2

The evidence from ancient documents and stelae Anktifi monument, Papyrus Ipuwer, the Israele Stele, Manetho, Heroditus, Homer, the Bible, the Rig Veda, Manetho, Josephus, Africanus, Eratosthenes and Apollodorus. Comments by Ze’ev Herzog, Dr Gallballi, hieroglyphics, Exodus.

We have collected a lot of evidence from both traditional Archaeologists and geophysical scientists that a major event did occur at the end of the early Bronze Age but so far we have neglected written records and monuments. The veracity of such classic sources such as the Bible, the Papyrus Ipuwer, the Israele Stele, Manetho, Heroditus, Homer, and The Rig Veda is highly controversial to say the least. The dating of these texts is the first problem. Many modern sources site the Exodus as around the time of the 21st Dynasty (1200B.C.) whilst not a few revisionists place it at the demise of the Early Bronze.

The Israeli Archaeologist, Ze’ev Herzog, throws his hands up in despair and claims the Israelis did not even come from Egypt and that the earlier story of the Patriarchs is a mere tale.

The Catastrophic End of the Early Bronze Age – part 1

Synopsis of an ancient destruction

Collapses and ancient destructions of civilizations are historically blamed on conquest, stagnating bureaucracy and other causes essentially led by human hands. This article firmly blames the chaotic blends of nature Conquest and ineptitude were essentially side effects of the uncontrollable wrath of nature .A nature that was far more virulent than is seen in recent times.This example of the Early Bronze Age is but one in a series that decimated mankind.

The Catastrophic End of the Early Bronze Age

Testimonials from respected archaeologists Kathryn Kenyon, Ernest Wright, Claude Schaeffer, John Garstung, Paolo Matthiae ,Carl Blegen’s, Michael Rice

The sudden and dramatic collapse of the Early Bronze Age civilizations, around 3200 B.C., has puzzled many an Archaeologist. Highly respected academics such as Kathryn Kenyon and John Garstung have wondered over these unexplained phenomena. The consensus of academic opinion notes not only was it sudden and dramatic but that it was widespread in it’s geography, spreading from Europe, across Asia Minor to the Indus valley and beyond to China. There seems a high probability the Americas were involved.

Before we proceed I think it essential to review some of the academic opinions on the subject from the professional Archaeologist to the scientific investigator. Then I believe it constructive to find out what happened and what caused these events. In particular I would like to examine how much may have been caused by mankind’s misadventures (e.g. War, environmental misuse, religious fervour and weak leadership) and what proportion can we allot to events largely out of our control (e.g. Disease, famine, flood, climate, tectonic disturbance and cosmic events)
