The Roman Time Line and the Heinsohn Horizon

The Roman Time Line and The Heinsohn Horizon have published a new paper by Gunnar Heinsohn that reviews the stratigraphy for seven cities:
Aachen, Kalisz, Rome, Athens, Byzantium, Jerusalem, and Samarra.

Gunnar Heinsohn - 1 May 2016

The stratigraphy of Aachen, for example, illustrates Gunnar Heinsohn’s central theme that the mainstream has mistakenly populated 700 phantom years [in the 1st millennium] with Roman Architecture and Artefacts from Antiquity i.e. 1st – 3rd centuries.

When Roman Architecture and Artefacts are correctly allocated to Antiquity it’s easier to understand the full implications of Gunnar Heinsohn’s perspective.


Heinsohn’s interpretation of the 1st millennium is beyond the pale for academia because it undermines so many of their carefully crafted creations.

However, for open minded individuals, Gunnar Heinsohn provides an invaluable opportunity to discover whether Stratigraphy is Mightier than the Pen.

Therefore, for open minded individuals, here is a basic reality check.

The reality check involves establishing a Roman Empire Time Line of events.

The first three elements in the Roman Empire Time Line are the fundamental academic anchors used to bind together the Roman Empire, the Church of Rome and Modern Times into a unified historical narrative.

Octavian’s power was then unassailable and in 27 BC the Roman Senate formally granted him overarching power and the new title Augustus, effectively marking the end of the Roman Republic.

There is no year zero in this scheme, so the year AD 1 immediately follows the year 1 BC. This dating system was devised in 525, but was not widely used until after 800.

Theodosius I, the last emperor to rule over both East and West, died in 395 AD after making Christianity the official religion of the empire.

The next three elements in the Roman Empire Time Line come from the comical parade of Four, Five and Six Emperors used to bind together a fragmenting Roman Empire.

The Year of the Four Emperors

Between June of 68 and December of 69, Rome witnessed the successive rise and fall of Galba, Otho, and Vitellius until the final accession of Vespasian, first of the Imperial Flavian dynasty, in July 69.

The Year of the Five Emperors refers to the year 193 AD, in which there were five claimants for the title of Roman Emperor.

The Year of the Six Emperors refers to the year 238 AD, during which six people were recognised as emperors of Rome.

The completed Roman Empire Time Line contains six textbook dates that define the mainstream Roman Empire narrative: 27 BC, 1 AD, 68 AD, 193 AD, 238 AD and 395 AD.

The Roman Empire Time Line is spliced onto the Old Japanese Cedar chronology so that the Crisis of the Third Century starts before the Heinsohn Horizon.

The Crisis of the Third Century, also known as Military Anarchy or the Imperial Crisis, (AD 235–284) was a period in which the Roman Empire nearly collapsed under the combined pressures of invasion, civil war, plague, and economic depression.

AD 01 Sync Calendars

Even to my jaundiced eye the close alignment of six textbook dates spanning the Heinsohn Horizon is a startling result.

The alignment implies the Machiavellian Monks simply manufactured a false narrative to establish authoritarian antecedents and distance themselves from natural disasters.

The Anno Domini dating system was devised in 525 by Dionysius Exiguus to enumerate the years in his Easter table.

According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, popes continued to date documents according to regnal years for some time, but usage of AD gradually became more common in Roman Catholic countries from the 11th to the 14th centuries.

The revised splicing also implies natural disasters were the underlying reasons for the collapse in the Purity of Roman Coins and the disintegration of the Roman Empire.

Purity of Roman Denarius

There are other very interesting implications.

Firstly, it provides a revised interpretation of the Trepidation data that more accurately reflects R. R. Newton’s view that the Earth-Moon system experienced “a ‘square wave’ in the accelerations that lasted from about 700–1300”.

Similarly, it closes [with a jolt] the mysterious gap in 1st millennium observations of Axial Tilt that George Dodwell partially filled with Chinese observations.

Secondly, it provides a rationale for re-aligning Justinian’s Raging Bulls with the formation of the Denver Middle Sand Unit.

AD 01 Sync Justinian


The re-alignment implies Samarra was eventually drowned in a sea of sand following the final disintegration of one [or two] of Justinian’s Raging Bulls.

Thirdly, it implies Stratigraphy is Mightier than the Pen.
