Re: Questions raised by the Hollstein data

Congratulations! With this graph you found hard evidence for Hollstein's 207 year mismatch! But how can we now explain the 73 (rsp. 67) year difference between the old Branch of H's chronology and the calibrated wiggle-matched bristlecone DC? [ref. M. G. L. Baillie: A Slice Through Time: Dendrochron...

Re: Questions raised by the Hollstein data

Thanks for the excellent visiualisation of the neutral correlation between the two excerpts from Hollstein's data. However, to avoid premature conclusions, it should be noted that the samples from the 5th century were the outcome of a rigid preselection process. It took Hollstein many years to find ...

Re: Questions raised by the Hollstein data

Hello Lars-Ake, as you found a mismatch of 207 years in Hollsteins data while I found 299, let's assume we are both right and try to find out the cause of this deviation. Following the 9th century H's data match with history and leave not much room for doubts. The Roman relics were dated by H. from ...

Re: Questions raised by the Hollstein data

Please also note that the uncertain years according to Holstein data detected by Lars-Åke are 207 years before approximately 540 AD (i.e aprox. the years 333-540 AD) which is an other period than Illig's "Phantom time" (7'th to 9'th cent AD). His needs of exactly 297 years after AD 590, a...

Re: Questions raised by the Hollstein data

Hello Lars-Ake, I'm sorry to admit, that I never received your email (spam filter? S... happens :mrgreen:). Of course, a thorough correlation of ring-widt patterns provides better quantitative data than GLK. The only advantage of the latter is that it may be verified by everybody without more or les...

Re: Questions raised by the Hollstein data

Please let me add a few notes that may be helpful for an understanding of the general confusion within chronology. Illig: His Theory mixes two hypotheses 1. There is a discrepancy of some three centuries between our CE (common era) year-count and most dates reported for the Roman Empire (and the rei...

Terrarius: Hi everybody

Some ten years ago, I read about Illigs thesis of surplus centuries within historical records. My first idea (I have a professional background in physics) was that it should be quite easy to disprove this funny theory: Just verify the approximate proportionality between 14C-age and backward year-cou...
