Ancient history

Gammon has produced a working model for the chronology of the XVIIIth Dynasty that accords with the chronology of Israel drawn up by Biblical scholars.[3] and concludes that Horemheb followed Ay directly as "Lord of the Two Lands"[4]

Glasgow Chronology

P John Crowe notes that:

"The SIS Glasgow conference was well attended. Velikovsky wrote a paper for the event, but ill health sadly made his attendance impossible, so it was read in his absence. An alternative revision called the Glasgow Chronology (GC) was then developed by SIS revisionists over the next four years. It retained the AiC synchronisms, reducing the dates for Dynasty 18 by around 500 years, and leaving the remaining dynasties in their numerical sequence but with extensive overlapping. It was a joint effort mainly by Gammon, Peter James and John Bimson."[5] Gammon studied history at London University, where he received his B.A. Honours degree, and studied for a Diploma in Archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, London. He holds a senior position in the Civil Service.[6]
