Key words: origin of language, comparative linguistics, monogenesis.
Early Cretan Script Signs as Proto-Alphabet
Based on author’s research of writing signs found at the basement of the palace in Phaestos (Crete), dated to beginning of the early Minoan period I, a conclusion is made that they may represent a script preceding the Minoan hieroglyphic and Linear A by 300–500 years, and may be a kind of a specific script which author called Alpha, whose signs are initial forms for all subsequent Mediterranean scripts. Moreover, the signs coincide with the signs on an engraved stamp seal from Anau (about 2300 BC, Turkmenistan). A hypothesis is substantiated that the development of this sacral script according to certain religious-mystical tradition could result in separation of consonant signs and creation of a sacred alphabetic script, both consonant and all subsequent.
Key words: proto-alphabet, Cretan script, Knossos, Phaestos, Linear A, Linear B, sacral script, alphabetic script, hieroglyphic script.

On the Problem of New Dating of the Trojan War
Mistakes of traditional dating of the Trojan War (1250–1184 B.C.) and subsequent invasion of Dorians into Peloponnesus are demonstrated. Calculation by nine continuous genealogies of Greek kings with regard to natural and reliable biological terms of change of generations allows to date the end of the Trojan War 988±20 B.C. This agrees with the chronological gap (245 years) found by the author in the Paros Chronicle, which gives somewhat different, but close in time date of the end of the Trojan War: 964±15 B.C. The obtained result shifts the Mycenaean Greek and Mediterranean chronology due to shrinkage of the Dark Age by 200–245 years.
Key words: Trojan War, Greece, Dorians, Heraklides, People of the Sea, Paros Chronicle, chronology, genealogy.
