Other objects besides scarabs present problems for Velikovsky’s system. Mycenaean pottery is, as Velikovsky admitted, contemporaneous with the Egyptian 18th Dynasty that followed the Hyksos period. And the period after the Hyksos period was, in Palestine, the Israelite monarchy of the mid-ninth century B.C., according to Velikovsky. If Velikovsky were correct, Mycenaean pottery should be found in Palestine in Iron II levels of the mid-ninth century. But, in fact, it is found in Late Bronze levels, beneath the Iron Age levels, preceding the Iron Age II levels by about 300 years.
