Today, most Egyptologists prefer the Low Chronology, which yields dates of 1182–1151 B.C. for the reign of Ramesses III; see Edward F. Wente, Jr., and Charles C. van Siclen, “A Chronology of the New Kingdom,” in J. Johnson and Edward F. Wente, Jr., eds., Studies in Honor of George R. Hughs (Studies in Ancient Oriental Civilizations 39) (Chicago: Oriental Institute, University of Chicago, 1975), pp. 217–261. For the current state of Egyptian absolute chronology, see Kenneth A. Kitchen, “Regnal and Genealogical Data of Ancient Egypt (Absolute Chronology I): The Historical Chronology of Ancient Egypt, A Current Assessment,” in Manfred Bietak, ed., The Synchronisation of Civilisations in the Eastern Mediterranean in the Second Millennium B.C. (Vienna: Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 2000), pp. 39–52.
