An Alternative Dating of Minoan and Mycenean Crete and Greece


The dating of Minoan civilisation is usually divided into Early, Middle and late Minoan. The dating methodology used here is based on many of the insights of Velikovsky. Early Minoan being the period after 1350 and eruptions of Thera (known as the Upper Scoriae eruptions) and the Exodus of the Israelites from Egypt until the end of Early Minoan with another cataclysmic event that probably saw another eruption of Thera around 968 BC with the sinking of Atlantis in the Atlantic Ocean. This eruption of Thera is probably known to scientists as the Cape Riva eruption.


Middle Minoan dates from the period after the sinking of Atlantis until the cataclysmic events after the Trojan War (around 690 BC). This was probably the period most associate with the Thera/Santorini or Minoan eruption. This eruption occurred after the reign of the female Pharoah Neferneferauten and before the invasion of Egypt by Piye (Piankhi) her Kushite descendant. It was the disruption of this period that allowed the Kushite Dynasty to reclaim their rights to Egypt. This was most likely during the reign of Amaziah (r.695-666 BC) King of Judah whose wife was to become the Queen-Mother (G'virah) Jecoliah of Judah the daughter of Neferneferauten.

This was also the period when Mycenean Greece flourished. These so-called Bronze Age Mycenean Greeks were the surviving Atlanteans or Pelasgians (Philistines) of E haplogroup. It is important to note also that the dna found in bodies in a cave ossuary located in the Lassithi plateau of east-central Crete is not from the early Minoan period as claimed but comes from the Late Minoan period around 300-200 BC. Thus this dna closely reflects the modern dna of Crete and Greece.

The late Minoan period is from about 600 BC until the Cretan War of 200 BC. This was also the time of the Israelite R1a Dorian invasion or settlement of Greece. This is also the period when the Homeric literary heritage was propagated in Greece when its actual location and origins were in Northern Europe among the matriarchal Danaan of the Tribe of Zebulon (North Atlanteans of R1b y-dna). The patriarchal Mycenean Greeks were from the Southern Atlanteans of E y-dna. The end of this period also saw a further eruption of Thera around 197 BC.
