This is contrary to the normal archaeological practice of testing a theory against the evidence, rather than the evidence against the theory.The alleged refusal by the Egyptians to record the events of the Exodus isn't the only problem, as pointed out by eminent biblical scholar We should observe that the biblical sources for the earlier periods are remarkably unspecific.Two such sites are the Biblical Kadesh Barnea, modern Ein Qadis, and Ezion Geber, on the Israeli side of the border between Israel and Jordan, just outside Eilat.
The Book of Numbers gives a list of sites at which the Hebrews allegedly settled, in Sinai and its immediate surroundings, during the Exodus.
Of these sites, a select few can be pinpointed relatively well by description and deduction.
We are told that these people spent 40 years wandering around in the desert — they escaped, as slaves from Egypt, and so forth.
There is not a shred of archaeological or historical evidence, outside of the Bible, that this is even true! You would think that if a people spent 40 years wandering around in the desert they'd leave some archaeological evidence? There's no evidence that somebody named Moses even existed.
Yet another approach is to add up chronological information in the Bible from Exodus, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings to arrive at a period well in excess of 555 years between the Exodus and Solomon, implying an Exodus date significantly before about 1519 BCE.
Rohl and Velikovsky both date the Exodus to Dudimose, final ruler of the 13th Dynasty at the very end of the Middle Kingdom, at the time of the Hyksos rise to power in the Delta region.
So if there were archaeological remains to be found from the Exodus, one would have expected them to be found by now.
And yet, thus far there is no trace of the biblical "600,000 men on foot, besides children" plus "a mixed crowd..live stock in great numbers" (Exod. The biblical accounts concerning the Exodus contradict one another, and as a result a variety of dates have been proposed for the Exodus.
Both based their dates on the alternative chronologies, the Revised Chronology of Velikovsky, and New Chronology of Rohl, both of which shift the accepted chronology forward by several centuries, in the case of Rohl from c.1690 BCE to 1450–1446 BCE, with the exodus occurring in 1447/1446 BCE.
