11. Experiments with Time. I: 'Catastrophes and Chronologies' [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 953-881AC), when the number of sites had risen to 92, and a return to some semblance of normality began with the Geometric Period (880-701AC) although only 39 of the 195 sites showed evidence of architectural remains. Leading up to the onset of the Dark Ages', three catastrophic events took place. About 1250AC, the volcano Santorini on the island of Thera exploded in a tremendous eruption which blew 50 cubic miles of the island out of the water [2 ]. Sea-shells and pumice were deposited at Tel el-Dab'a in Egypt, where they are found in an early 18th Dynasty context. The date-range given by Bietak is between the beginning of the 18th Dynasty (1345AC ...
12. Pot Pourri [Journals] [SIS Review]
... reports the discovery of a partially submerged series of fortifications and other structures off the coast of Gujarat, which Professor Rao identifies as Krishna's Dwarka from the Mahabharat. An astronomer who is also an expert on the epic poem believes that the solar eclipse referred to within it can only be that of 1311BC and that this thereby dates the city. Santorini again Yet another documentary has attempted to quantify the effects of the Bronze Age eruption of Santorini. Vulcanologists on The Volcano that Blew the World Away (Part 2) (National Geographic Adventure One, 29/12/2002) estimate that 30-40 km³ of magma were ejected, leaving a caldera into which flowed 8 cu. miles of ...
13. Thera and the Exodus: the Cause and the Effect [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... G. Galanopoulos, 1964). Conversations with Prof Galanopoulos on these causal relationships are given by James W. Mavor [2 ]. Dr Hans Goedicke of the Department of Near Eastern Studies at Johns Hopkins University claims that the parting of the Reed Sea in the Exodus was actually caused by a tidal wave resulting from the volcano Thera (Santorini): this was reported in The Guardian [3 ] by Christopher Kilburn of the University of London Observatory, and member of the Royal Society's Volcanic Eruption Surveillance Team. In 1888 The Royal Society of Britain published the findings of a committee set up to study the eruption of Krakatoa in 1883. Together with the preliminary report of the ...
14. Atlantis - The Lost Continent Finally Found [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... are very specific on the fact that the "Atlantic Ocean"- otherwise called "Ocean of the Atlanteans", "Outer Ocean", "Kronian Ocean", Mare Oceanum (" Ocean Sea") or Mare Magnum (" Great Sea") was indeed the whole of the "earth-encircling ocean". Q8: Thera or Santorini, the volcanic caldera located is the Greek region of the Mediterranean Sea, is often claimed to be the remains of Atlantis by several Atlantologists of scientific repute. Is this view tenable? A: Not at all. Plato and other authorities are very specific on the fact that Atlantis lay "outside the Pillars of Hercules". It ...
15. On Dayton and Dating [Journals] [SIS Review]
... to the Bristle Cone Pine, growing at an altitude of 10,000 feet where cosmic rays are intense, did not apply to either South America or to Europe. Even further doubts were strengthened when carbon-14 results on nine samples of grain (i .e . material of one year's growth) from the same storage jar at Thera (Santorini) gave dates of 2037, 1850, 1420, 1350, 1394, 1300, 1110, 960 and 900 BC!! Recent work at Aachen in particular, and other locations has shown that organic materials growing in smoky areas, or beside vaporous lakes, can receive greater doses of carbon-14 than those growing in a purer atmosphere. ...
16. The Miracles of the Exodus by Colin Humphries and The Moses Legacy by Graham Phillips (Book reviews) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... to the Egyptian sojourn. The heroes and prophets of the Old Testament were figures from folklore, and so on. However, Phillips thinks the Exodus involved a volcanic eruption in order to account for the plagues – previously put forward in an earlier book, Act of God. However, he plumps for the Thera volcano on the island of Santorini in the Aegean. Phillips appears to keep closer to biblical numbers than Humphries, plumping for an Exodus date around 1400 BC. However, this is essentially derived from his preconceived Exodus synchronism with the Thera eruption. An ice core anomaly at 1390 BC may lend support to this date but strangely he rejects Hans Goedicke's reference to a text ...
17. The Israelite Exodus and the Volcanic Eruption of Thera [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... times larger than that of Krakatoa's and more than 30 percent deeper, it is thought that Thera's eruption must have been even more devastating. Perhaps, the theory goes, it was violent enough to create havoc in the delta area of Egypt, more than 500 miles away, Originally, it was thought that the eruption of Thera (or Santorini, as it is also known) occurred about 1450 B.C ., the approximate date of the exodus (according to 1 Kings 6:1 ), and the date for the end of the Late Minoan IB period, when almost all of the Minoan sites on the island of Crete were destroyed. Excavations at Akrotiri, ...
18. Pot Pourri [Journals] [SIS Review]
... year period of climatic downturn (implying that today's global warming is cyclical). In Egypt, it was followed by 100 years of turmoil'. In the second documentary (Mystery of the Minoans, BBC2, 2/8 /01), the end of Minoan civilisation was again linked to the eruption (c .1600BC) of Santorini on Thera. The volcanic plume which deposited a pumice layer 10m thick was calculated to be 36km high. Evidence was presented for a pre-existing shallow sea in the centre of Thera, suggesting much of the ash may have fallen into this and been concealed. Adding that to the calculations allows a doubling of the explosive power and SO2 emission ...
19. A Slice Through Time (dendrochronology and precision dating) by M. G. L. Baillie [Journals] [SIS Review]
... date replicated in the Irish oaks for 1628-26 BC and later in German and English oaks also. The Dye 3 Greenland ice core of Hammer et al. [8 ] shows an acid maximum at 1645 +/ - 20 BC, which is in fair agreement with this date, and there is the suggestion that the eruption of Thera/Santorini marks the causative event, based on the very many published 14C dates for materials from Thera. Baillie does less well in trying to establish links between other volcanic eruptions and the acid maxima in ice cores or narrow rings in tree chronologies. Indeed, on pp. 78-79 he is able to refute the claims of Hammer et al. ...
20. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... but by plasma instabilities in the ionosphere. Further analysis of the data failed to confirm the original pattern of "clustering" over the highland regions and showed equal frequencies all over the planet. However, there has been a drop in the sulphur dioxide levels in the atmosphere since 1978, so perhaps there had been a recent major eruption? Santorini and Darkness Over Egypt source: NEW SCIENTIST 15.5 .86, p.35 A study of sediments from the N.E . Delta region of Egypt shows evidence of material of volcanic origin at depths corresponding to an age of between 3595 and 3512 years before present. Also detected are glassy shards which are thought to be ...
