Using environmental data derived from ancient texts, archaeological and geomorphological investigations, air photographs, and different types of satellite images, we have been able to trace the ancient branches of the Euphrates between the latitude of al-Falluah on the north and the latitude of Babylon on the south, and to suggest names for these branches.
This undertaking is absolutely fundamental to an accurate reconstruction of the history of the region, where the physical environment exerted a profound influence on settled life which was entirely dependent on water supply stemming from the various branches of the Euphrates.

 Nabataea: Bible Chronology: Solomon to Hezekiah Part II
During the reign of-Shal-maneser III of Assyria (860-825 BC, usual Assyrian dating) a series of campaigns into Syria were carried out, in which the Assyrians frequently came into contact with well known Biblical figures, among whom are found Ben-hadad (II) and Hazael, kings of Syria, and Jehu, king of Israel, is mentioned once.
This is so with 795 and 794 BC, while the year 793 BC is strangely entirely omitted (by usual Assyrian dating these years are 787, 786, and 785 BC).
From the mention of Shishak in Solomon's time, 958 BC, to the appearance of Tirhakah in 701 BC is, in the Bible, 257 years, exactly the same interval as given in Breasted's Egyptian Chronology, 945-688 BC, and the intervening points of contact are also spaced to harmonize perfectly.

Based upon the cyclic perturbations of the earth every 53/54 years caused by catastrophic celestial events, some new theses for the reconstruction of ancient history are presented.
It is somewhat doubtful whether this event was, as claimed, a total eclipse of the sun, but to revert to older chronologies based largely on the Masoretic Texts of the Bible would, at this stage, be too cumbersome.
A confirmation of this total is found in the average reign length of English kings and queens from 1066 AD to the present, an average reign length of slightly over 22 years; this is to be expected, taking into account the differences of conditions in both time and location.
