This web page draws heavily on FACTS as listed in "The Timetables of Science", by Alexander Hellemans and Bryan Bunch [New York: Simon & Schuster, 1988]. It does not copy the TEXT of that fine and recommended reference, and has value added in correlating the scientific and literary production of the century, and in hotlinking to additional resources.
Facts were also checked against "The 1979 Hammond Almanac" [ed. Martin A. Bacheller et al., Maplewood, New Jersey, 1978], p.795. It also utilizes facts from Volume I of D.E.

2nd MILLENNIUM B.C.: Executive Summary

This is the era described in the Old Testament. It runs from the height of Mesopotamian and Egyptian civilization through the completion of Stonehenge, the era of the Trojan Wars sung about by Homer, and the Classical Age of China. SOMETHING enormous and violent, around 1628 or 1637 B.C., changed events worldwide, and may have caused a "mini-ice-age." It was probably the explosion of a volcano on the island of Santorini (or Antikithera). See below, at 1,650 BC to 1,600 BC. This era is still considered Ancient History, but more and more we discover that archaeology confirms the written record which has sometimes been dismissed as merely legend and Fantasy. more {to be done}

Fiction About the 2nd MILLENNIUM B.C. I particularly enjoy "At the Palaces of Knossos", by Nikos Kazantzakis, translated by Theodora Vasils and Themi Vasils [Athens: Ohio University Press, 1988]. With the help of Princess Aradne, and other friends in the palace at Crete, Theseus enters the Labyrinth and slays the hideous Minotaur, thus spearheading the resistance of the Athenian people against King Minos. Technically a Young Adult novel, this is rich, deep, and equally suitable for adults. Although I enjoyed the visual effects in Disney's "Prince of Egypt", I feel that it distorts the Old Testament and archaological records so much as to be a bad fictional treatment of a crucial historical era.

Koeller] 2,000 BC: Ur was destroyed by Elamites, ending the Sumerian control of Mesopotamia. [Hammond Almanac, p.788] 2,000 BC: Native North-Americans had settled in permanent villages, where they domesticated dogs, and cultivated manioc, squash, maize, and beans. [1979 Hammond Almanac, p.788]
2,000-1,900 BC: In this era, Abraham was said to have lived, who founded Judaism, and was father to both the Jews and Arabs. [Hammond Almanac, p.788] 2,000-1,700 BC: The Hebrews existed as wandering shepherds in the land of Canaan. [Hammond Almanac, p.788] circa 2,000 BC: Abraham [from the Hebrew "the father is high"] was, according to Genesis 17.5 "the father of many" ... namely of the Jews and the Arabs. He was the progenitor of the Hebrews, through his son Isaac, and of the Arabs, through his son Ishmael. He was the founder of Judaism, received God's word that his people would reach the promised land (Canaan). He demanded the ritual of circumcision among his people, and is revered by Jew, Christian, and Mohammedan alike for his utter faith in God, as evidenced by his willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac, as told in Genesis; and also for his kindness toward the problematic nephew Lot. 2,000-1,700 BC: The Greek-speaking Mycenaeans settled in the mainland of Greece, grew into a thriving civilization, and traded with island kingdom of Crete. [Hammond Almanac, p.788] The guinea pig is domesticated in Peru. [Hellemans p.13] Contraceptives are introduced in Egypt. [Hellemans p.13] Alfalfa is domesticated in Iran. [Hellemans p.13] The first zoo in China, the Park of the Intelligence, is founded.

[Hellemans p.13] The Cretan palace of Minos introduces interior bathrooms with a water supply. [Hellemans p.13] The Sumerian system of measures includes, besides the shekal and mina [see 2,500 BC to 2,400 BC], units of capacity: the log [541 millilieters, or 33 cubic inches]; the homer, 720 logs; and the cubit and the foot, which is two-thirds of a cubit; a cubit is the distance from the tip of the middle finger to the elbows, about 43 to 56 centimeters [17 to 22 inches] [Hellemans p.13] The ard, a primitive form of plow, is found in Uruk (Iraq) [Hellemans p.15] The earliest iron plowshares are in use in Canaan (Israel) [Hellemans p.15] Paddy culture of rice occurs in southeastern Asia. [Hellemans p.15]

1,950 BC to 1,900 BC

1,900 BC to 1,800 BC

Mesopotamian mathematicians discover what is now known as the Pythagorean Theorem. [Hellemans p.15] c. 1900-1600 BC: The Babylonian Empire [David W. Koeller] 1,894 BC: Babylon becomes the capital of a small kingdom of Canaanites [Hellemans p.12; but erroneously shown in row for "2000 to 1951 BC"]

1,800 BC to 1,750 BC

Multiplication tables appear in Mesopotamia. [Hellemans p.15]

1,750 BC to 1,700 BC

The Code of Hammurabi, the first known set of laws, is written. [Hellemans p.14] King Hammurabi ruled Babylon from 1,750-1,708 BC, expanding it deep into Mesopotamia and Assyria. [Hammond Almanac, p.788] The Moscow Papyrus, dating from the Twelfth Dynasty, shows that the Egyptians possess considerable knowledge of geometry, including a formula for the volume of a truncated pyramid; the Moscow and Rhind papyruses (see also 1650-1601 BC) are the two main sources of knowledge of Egyptian mathematics. [Hellemans p.15] c. 1700 BC: Shang China [David W. Koeller]

1,700 BC to 1,650 BC

The Hyskos dominate Egypt. [Hellemans p.14]. Dates of 1,786-1,567 BC cover the rule by these kings, most likely from Canaan, whose warfare depended upon horse-drawn chariots. [Hammond Almanac, p.788] The Phoenicians are writing with a 22-letter alphabet. [Hellemans p.15] 1,700-1,500 BC: On the island of Crete, the Minoan civilization reached its high point, as exemplified by the sophisticated engineering and art of the palaces at Knossos and Phaistos. By about 1,500 BC it used the Linear B script for writing. [Hammond Almanac, p.788]

1,650 BC to 1,600 BC

Ahmes, an Egyptian scribe, affixes his name to a papyrus dealing with the solutions to simple equations; this papyrus known as the Rhind papyrus, after A. Henry Rhind, who purchased it in 1858 AD, is the main source of information about early Egyptian mathematics; Ahmes probably copied an earlier document from about 1,825 BC. The volcanic island of Thera, also known as Santorini, explodes in 1,628 BC or 1,645 BC, according to sequences of tree-ring dates from the United States and Ireland (1,628) or glacial cores found in Greenland (1,645); this eruption, which probably destroys the nearby Cretan civilization, is more conventionally placed at 1,550 BC; it may account for the unusually harsh winters from 1,628 to 1,626 BC as recorded in bristlecone pines. [Hellemans p.15] Jonathan Vos Post adds: it may also be the origin of the Myth of Atlantis. Earth : What a Blast by Philip Ball [19 Sep 2000] "While fashion tells us that Armageddon may descend from the skies in the form of a giant meteorite impact, there may be more to fear from the ground beneath our feet." "There is no evidence that meteorites have ever left a dent on human civilization. But volcanic eruptions have provided ample indication of their destructive potential. New research in Geophysical Review Letters1 shows just how far this disruption can reach: a massive eruption in Greece three and a half millennia ago seems to have caused environmental devastation even in Sweden." "Hakan Grudd from the Climate Impacts Research Centre in Kiruna, Sweden and colleagues have studied the growth rings in pine trees preserved in a peat bog in south-central Sweden. They have used radiocarbon dating to determine the age of the trees, finding that their samples grew during a 200-year period between 1695 and 1496 BC -- during the Bronze Age." "The tree rings became abruptly very narrow around 1637 BC (with an uncertainty of about 65 years in either direction). The researchers conclude that this blip was probably caused by harsher climate conditions at that time, suppressing growth of fresh wood." "What could have instigated this disturbance? Several earlier studies have uncovered evidence of a similar phenomenon further south. An analysis of pine tree rings in the USA showed that the growth had been severely affected by cold in 1627 BC. The same thing was found in Irish, English and German oaks, starting at just the same time. And the same signature has been found in Turkey." "All the signs imply that there was some catastrophic event in 1627/28 whose effects, the new work shows, were felt at least throughout the entire western Northern Hemisphere." "Historians and climate scientists are fairly sure they know the culprit. Some time around the middle of the 17th century BC, the Santorini volcano on the island of Thera in the Aegean Sea in Greece blew its top in one of the largest eruptions of the past 10,000 years. This explosion was considerably greater than that at Krakatoa in 1883, which was equivalent to the detonation of 200 million tons of TNT." "The Santorini eruption released about seven cubic miles of magma, and scattered ash over much of the eastern Mediterranean and Turkey. It blasted a crater perhaps 80 square kilometres in area, and buried the Minoan city of Akroteri, on the southern part of Thera, under about two metres of ash. The damage wrought by the eruption is widely thought to have caused the end of the Minoan civilization, which centred on the island of Crete." "The volcanic dust holds the key to its longer-ranged environmental impact -- for, injected into the upper atmosphere in a plume perhaps 23 miles high, it would have been carried right around the globe. Scattered in the air, it would have blocked out some of the sun's light and heat, triggering probably worldwide climate cooling." "A small drop in global mean temperature -- a few tenths of a degree -- was detected after the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991. Larger eruptions have more severe effects: the eruption of Tambora volcano in Indonesia in 1815 caused summer frost in New England and produced the latest wine harvest since 1482. But it seems that the Santorini eruption was even more terrible, prompting a kind of mini-ice age lasting several years." [see: Grudd, H., Briffa, K. R., Gunnarson, B. E. & Linderholm, H. W.

Thutmose I also had a daughter, Hatshepsut, who became the wife of Thutmose III. Thutmose III deposed his father (1501 BC); Thutmose II had a brief reign; and Hatshepsut ruled the longest of all as "king." Thutmose IV was the son, and successor to Amenhotep II, and reigned circa 1420-1411 BC. Pictograph writing appears in Shang Dynasty China. [Hellemans p.16] Archaeological evidence (distinctive axes, swords, etc.) from China are found at various Middle Eastern sites, showing considerable contact and trade between China and the Middle East.

His tomb, the tomb of "King Tut", was opened by the Earl of Carnavon and Howard Carter, in 1922, dazzling the world with treasures and a renewed fascination with ancient Egypt.

1,300 BC to 1,250 BC

1,292-1,225 BC: Egypt under the rule of Ramses II completes the temples of Abu-Simbel, Karnak, Luxor, and Thebes. Moses (in the Exodus) leads the Hebrews out of Egypt. [Hammond Almanac, p.788]; [Hellemans p.16] Ramses I (Ramesses) was the successor to Harmhab, who had been chief officer to Tutankhamen. Ramses I started construction of the hypostyle at Karnak. His son was Seti I, whose son in turn (but not heir) was Ramses II. Ramses II usurped the throne, established the XX Dynasty, and led Egypt to its greatest height of power. The empire now reached from Southern Syria to the 4th cataract of the Nile, and brought astonishing luxury to the aristocracy. There was a construction boom under Ramses II, which included the completed temple at Karnak, the mortuary temple at Thebes, and the Abu-Simbel rock temple. Long did he war against the Hittites. Ramses II was succeeded by Merneptah, and a period of chaos and anarchy ensued, until ended by Ramses III. His wife, Tiy, conspired against him, but failed. Moses was the Lawgiver, the prophet who led his people from slavery in Egypt to the border of cannan, the Promised Land, which he beheld but knew he would never himself reach. God chose Moses to give his people the Ten Commandments, the criminal code, and the body of liturgical law -- together known as the Mosaic Law. The story of Moses, from his rescue among the bullrushes, his divine contact with the burning bush, and his leading his people from bondage is told in the books of Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. These four books, plus Genesis, collectively known as the Pentateuch, are legendarily ascribed to Moses himself. The "Assumption of Moses" is one of the Pseudoepigrapha.
