Archaeologist Harvey Weiss at Yale has excelled with his pioneering work demonstrating that a catastrophic climate change ended the bronze age, as evidenced with the enigmatic bronze age megalithic archaeological site at Tel Leilan (eastern Syria) which he has been investigating, now in a desert, however, when the city flourished, Weiss shows that much more rain fell on those now parched plains of northwestern Mesopotamia, with rainfall up around 30 inches per year, feeding streams, lakes, pastures, marshes, and forests, where now is an arid and desolate expanse of plains and low buttes.
And there are many more ruins in the Middle East which are now in deserts, bearing testimony to that catastrophic climate change, as in north Africa, with the bronze age ruins of Yam, now in the sands of the Sahara, and on the desert plains of the Indus valley river drainage basin are about 800 sites of bronze age buildings’ ruins, proving again that this Rama Empire was devastated by the same global climate change, when the skies cleared greatly, for much less rainfall, and ending the heavy snowfall for the Ice Age in the extreme latitudes and high elevations, the skies having cleared because there was less cloud formation by less evaporation off the oceans, because the oceans were paradoxically warmer during the Ice Age (see the free ebook download of my first book, Old Earth? Why Not!), but had cooled to about today’s temperatures when the Ice Age ended.
In Greece there are about 300 bronze age townsites which were never built upon by subsequent generations, because the streams and ponds by which the sites were located long ago (as described by Plato in Critias and Timaeus) had dried up, when the global climate change occurred, because of the end of the Ice Age, when the sea level rose for the coastal bronze age port cities to succumb to the sea (refer to category Submerged Ancient Ruins).
Of course mainstream scientists say the Ice Age ended about 8,000 years before this, rendering their timeline highly suspicious, unless they want us to believe that megalithic monument and city building was ongoing in the 10000 B.C. timeframe, which of course, they would certainly never say, demonstrating the conundrum which they face with their timeline, and because also remember, there was a drastic climate change circa 1500 B.C., corroborated by the Ipuwer Papyrus of Egypt, the Vedic literature of India, and book of Exodus in the Bible, all in the timeframe of the Ipuwer Papyrus, when there was anarchy and chaos, from which the New Kingdom of Egypt would emerge.
