Our kickstarter and subsequent gofundme projects have been very successful. I would like to give a deep heartfelt thanks to all contributors. All funds raised have gone to radiocarbon dating and palynology processing. Jefferson and Dr. Suzanne Leroy donated their time and Jefferson paid for all of his travel and fieldwork expenses. But, this work could not have moved forward without funds for lab costs. A video explaining the research is shown below
After kickstarter and gofundme fees, we raised about $7000.00 USD which was a great help in paying for the radiocarbon dating of the new Nahal Ze ‘elim site. Final field work on this site was completed in 2018 and Jefferson is working with Dr. Suzanne Leroy on their research article on the seasonality of the Jerusalem Quake. The funds received helped resolve dating of the profile – an essential step in determining the seasonality of the Jerusalem Quake.
As there are ongoing costs for the Jerusalem Quake Seasonality Project, we have set up an ongoing funding site on Go FundMe. As with the kickstarter project, there are sample jewelry and objects as rewards. The link to that site is
In addition to Jerusalem Quake Seasonality, Jeff is working on (funds permitting)
- Improving dating of the Amos Quake (something which might help with King’s Chronologies)
- Scouting locations to look for evidence of the landslide at the end of the Exodus.
- Surveying scientific earthquake literature in the Himalayas to examine earthquakes reported in the Buddhist Canon
- Investigating Golden Age Mythology from many traditions and a potential early-mid Holocene cataclysmic event(s) which may have altered the course of human social development. Credit to Dr. Robert Schoch and his early work on the Age of the Sphinx and discussions regarding early Holocene (~10000 BC) evidence for a more advanced stage of human development than previously thought (e.g. Gobekli Tepe and Nabta Playa).
