Documentary theory

I just read a book by P. J. Wiseman called “New Discoveries in Babylonia About Genesis”. Mr Wiseman presents an alternative to the Documentary Theory based on archeological evidence. The book was written in 1936 and reprinted many times. His theory is called the “Tablet Theory”. It seems very plausable especially with the support of external archeological evidence. However, I have been unable to find a single catholic site that mentions this possible alternative. Can you offer any insight?
