In this way, there was throughout Mesopotamian history a constant interference with the settled, traditional civilisation of the great ancient cities by a variety of groups moving into the area from the mountain fastnesses to the east or the rolling plains to the north-west.
The kings of this Old Babylonian Period (or First Dynasty of Babylon), including Hammurabi (reigned 1848-1806 BC according to the now preferred chronology), sometimes made their official pronouncements bilingually in Akkadian and Sumerian, but as a living language and culture Sumerian was by now obsolescent.

Towards the end of the third millennium bc, rulers of the Sumerian Ur III Dynasty of Lower Mesopotamia began to feel the pressure of a seminomadic group referred to in their writings as the mar.tu.
In short, the Genesis covenants fit perfectly well with the norms of the early second millennium bc and not with treaties of other periods. In addition to their form, some of the specific terms in the covenants of the Patriarchs are consistent with norms of the early second millennium.
Though alliances of kings in the Levant were possible in several periods, only the period about 20001750 bc had conditions which allowed as much in Mesopotamia.

From about 1800 BC onward identified with the Sumerian Enlil (Akkadian: Bel), while under the Assyrian king Sargon II (reigned 721-705 BC), there is some identity of Ashur with Anshar, the father of An (Akkadian: Anu) in the Enuma Elish.
During the earlier part of the 2nd millennium BC, Kothar's forge was believed to be on the biblical Caphtor (probably Crete), though later, during the period of Egyptian domination of Syria and Palestine, he was identified with the Egyptian god Ptah, patron of craftsmen, and his forge was thus located at Memphis in Egypt.

 Understanding Egypt's 18th dynasty   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The eastern Mediterranean during the period 2000-1000 BC offers a chaos of unexplained clues-- so this page will try to gain clarity by narrowing its focus to Egypt's dramatic 18th dynasty (?1550-?1293 BC).
Since backwards, 'BC' numbering is so unintuitive, and since the numbers themselves still have a multi-century margin of error, I've arbitrarily shifted all dates 3314 years forward, to align Akhenaten's revolution with '1967' (the Summer of Love!).
This vaguely aligns Egypt's Old Kingdom with the Roman Empire, the Middle Kingdom with the Catholic Church, and the 18th dynasty with the US of A: So 'now' in 2001, Horemheb is in his 9th year, Tut having died in 1988 with Ay reigning until 1992 (cf Reagan and Bush).

 AN ALTERNATIVE VIEW OF THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE EXODUS (Revised)
Group iii tombs contained scarabs of the 13th Dynasty including one from Sobekhotep V dated to about 1725 BC, but this is an estimate as many reign lengths of the 13th Dynasty are unknown.
The ceramic date 1525 BC and the scarab dates 1525 and 1534 BC are dependent on Assyrian chronology; 1551 BC is dependent on the biblical chronology and the radiocarbon dates 1551-1535 are independent of both.
Thus there are two independent lines of evidence that arrive at the same conclusion: that the extensive archaeological evidence of an MB IIB Exodus combined with the biblical history and archaeology of Jericho yields the exact same 475-year down dating of the Late Bronze that Velikovsky proposed and supported by evidence from Egyptology.
