Harvey Weiss Yale Tell Leilan Catastrophic Climate Change Collapse Bronze Ice Age Civilizations Upper Mesopotamia Kingdom Akkad Apuma City Shekhena Paleoclimatology Harvey Weiss Yale Studies Timeline Bible Biblical History Genesis Veracity Foundation

Harvey Weiss at Yale has well affirmed through his studies at Tell Leilan (ancient city of Shekhena) in eastern Syria, on the wadi (dried-up stream) Jarrah, that catastrophic climate change spelled the end of that kingdom known as Apum, Shekhena having been its capital, that kingdom a district of the bronze age Akkadian (Assyrian) empire.

Weiss pegs the climate change which turned lush pastures and forests to desert there in upper Mesopotamia at circa 2200 b.c., yet archaeological records indicate circa 1800 b.c., Shekhena was enlarged and renamed Shubat Enlil, then covering over 200 acres surrounded by fortification walls and a huge temple complex with many housing units and paved streets within, that city having sustained 20,000 bronze age inhabitants.

So Weiss’ date is clearly wrong about the timeline for the catastrophic climate change, unending drought, which began to turn upper and lower Mesoptotamia as well as great swaths of the rest of the world to desert actually circa 1500 b.c., Weiss having put more credence on carbon 14 dating than on the clear archaeological record, with many ancient cities from the timeframe of Shubat Enlil now also stranded in deserts.  Learn much more here http://genesisveracityfoundation.com.
