Item:254411343615Synopsis: The extraordinary scenario in this book is based on the scientific analysis of treatises. A tree-ring chronology is a year-by-year record of what trees 'thought' of their growth conditions in the past. When we interrogate some of these records we find some positively alarming evidence of extreme environmental events in the past which also seem to be recorded in human history. These extreme events were thought to be linked to volcanic activity, but as research has continued the story has started to turn strange and increasingly extraterrestrial. Now the outline of the story can be together. It would be easier to believe that the account in this put book is true than to believe that all the apparently logical steps could just be one big mistake. The reader must judge. From the Publisher: CATASTROPHIC ENCOUNTERS WITH COMETSThis astonishing book challnges traditional views of history, and provides an explanation for many of the myths and legends that haunt humankind. Professor Mike Baillie's text is completely factual; the chronology is based on tree rings so it is absolutely sound. But, as he says, "It will be controversial." However, it would be easier to believe that the account in this book is true than to believe that all the apparently logical steps could just be one big mistake. The reader must judge... The book includes: An introduction to tree-ring dating for the general reader and examples of unbelievably precise dating. The volcano story: Ancient Chinese records, the Irish Annals and the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. Santorini, the debate: problems with dating the Sang and the New Kingdom and much more. Exodus and 48 years: a strange interval. Extraterrestrial effects: did a comet hit the Celtic sea in AD 540? An extraordinary conclusion. Professor Mike Baillie has a PhD in Dendrochronology and is based at the Palaeoecology centre at Queen's University, Belfast, Northern Ireland. The Centre is internationally recognised for its tree-ring research, and he has written many articles and books on the subject.
