And--oh--when it comes to Dynasty 19, everything is accurate because a new Sothic Cycle begins. Things will be even more accurate than they were in the previous Dynasty. Sothis will really rise in I Akhet and the entire calendar will be in sync with the naturally-occurring seasons. This will happen for many years because the sighting of Sothis only moves forward by one day every four years. By the traditional dating, if Ramesses II worries about his soldiers getting ambushed by a blizzard in Canaan, he will be doing his worrying in a winter month of the Civil Calendar in the season of Peret. But, once things start to go out of sync again, they will not right themselves for 1,460 years--unless someone decides to reform the Civil Calendar. Which happened.

                Toby. You forgot to mention Rohl was a rock musician in the early 1970's. Ok, all joking aside, are you seriously interested in archaeology? I take it you follow Rohl's theories, but what about... more
