22.10.1616 BC was a 60% sun eclipse with its peak at cca 6 am. Since the
observer were situated at the moment on a higher standing point, they
observe the eclipse quite well. This is my personal choice, but I must
reckon with an Exodus 1622 BC.
BTW, I didn´t stepped into the Jericho discussion, but there are plenty of
to identify biblical Jerichoes destruction with a level dated by Miss
the MB age.
There may be still other fitting eclipse dates, but this is merely my
choice. I´ll publish later during this year, I hope, a complete chronology
of Israel, as I conceive.
