Thiele etc cannot adjust their dates because they have a full set of
data. By comparison the dates the Egyptologists have are based on very
scanty data. I predict that they will find new data which will force
them to adjust some of the details of their reconstruction - but they
will manage to make compensatory adjustments to get back to the Thiele
etc date for Shishak.
