Who were the Lords of Avaris? David Rohl attempts to answer this question and many others in a book that spans centuries, tracks ancient migrations, travels the ancient Mediterranean world and investigates ancient legend and lore. It begins with recent archeology discovering ancient Minoan frescoes - in Egypt of all places!

David Rohl, developer of the New Chronology, or a new timeline, for the ancient world's events attempts to put the ancient legends of the reunification of Egypt, Homer's Trojan War, the arrival in the Levant of the "Philistines", the marauding attacks of the "Sea Peoples" and even the founding of Rome into a new historical context.

Orthodox historians have tried - and failed - to place these legends into historical context and have therefore consigned them to the status of pure myth without any basis in fact. David Rohl takes a different tack and, with his "heretical" New Chronology, is able to look at these ancient legends and accept that there may be kernels of truth in the old legends. He carefully builds his case over 600 pages wherein he purports to show that something like these events actually took place, but at different times than orthodox chronology and its adherents expect.

Mr. Rohl is not a "revisionist" and I would point out that orthodox dogma is overturned quite frequently as new ideas are put forth, tested and after much angst finally accepted. "Clovis First" in North America, for example, still has adherents despite mounting evidence that humans were in the Americas before Clovis culture appeared.

I enjoyed this book! I say that as someone who has read many works by eminent historians who spend multiple chapters on pottery sherds. Mr. Rohl covers pottery, artistic styles, languages and anicent legends while tying them together to reach his conclusions. The author writes entertainingly and often uses humor. He anticipates reader questions and is ready with answers. He covers these events and times with a "big picture" approach, never dumping too much for the general reader to handle. This is not history "lite", but rather history simplified for the general reader as well as the historian who is already familiar with the specifics. He helps the general reader by summarizing his conclusions at the end of sections and chapters.

This is an excellent and challenging work that neither talks down to nor over the head of the general audience. It is entertaining and challenges the reader to think about concepts rather than simply dumping data and hypotheses on the reader. This was a fun and interesting read and I recommend it with five stars.

Very interesting book and the third of the series by the author. This paperback edition is a print on demand book so it does not duplicate all the photographs and diagrams of the hardbound edition. Consequently, the photo quality is in many cases poor. Some photographs were dark or had scanning lines passing through the images.

Great history book. Enlightenment.

Dr Rohl is to be commended on transforming a mess of conflicting information stemming from legend and data from archaeology, into a very reasonable story of sequential events. He does indeed introduce guesses, but they are mere necessary connectors between otherwise disparate elements of the story.

Based on his previous work on reconstructing the Egyptian Time-Line upon which all other Eastern time-lines are based, the result is a wonderfully integrated story that makes sense, that actually could have been (if not in every detail).

I wish some more evidence from the field could be found to support the competing conjectures as to what might have really happened.

In a revised work, I suggest he include the theories expressed by Dr Simcha Jacobovici, since many seem to tally with his own. Also a reply to the quandary why so few Achean findings were uncovered at Avaris.

Also an analysis as to the possible connection between the Anatolian Luwites residing in Egypt, and Moses' tribe of Lewites.

Awesome book. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a Christian ancient history basis on the archaeological finds we currently have. You can tell that the author is very educated and, at least from a creationist perspective, should be considered an authoritative figure on the evidence we have for our post babel history.

Thanks. Just what I wanted.
Avaris is one of the delta Nile towns on the eastern side of Egypt just east of what they called Goshen. Interesting to see how many "layers" of people from the East were there for awhile and evidence for how they interacted. The archeological data and pictures is/are just amazing and his "new" dating chronology helps it all make more sense. So many fine details if you want that; good summary boxes ever so often also; just never seen so much documentation for ancient history of the whole Mediterranean area. Much has been discovered in recent years.
