... different message. "The effects of this catastrophic event would have been felt in the Nile Delta region about 35 centuries ago..." Some several hundred volcanic glass shards and ash grain were found embedded between layers of sediment from the Delta, and chemical analysis shows that the ash grains are identical to those found in the ruins of Santorini. It is surely of interest, however, that the age of the ash in the Delta sediments is given as 3500 BP (also reported in Workshop 1986:2 , p.21), as derived from radiocarbon dating. This approximates to 1500 BC: one might have expected an earlier date, one more in line with ...
44. Society News: 1999 SIS AGM & SIS Study Group Meeting 19th June 1999 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Delta. Carrying their dead kings with them they arrived in Greece and, striking inland, founded Mycenae, the burials of the kings being those attributed to Agamemnon. Part of his evidence is that the provenance of the gold of Agamemnon's mask' has recently been proved to be South Africa and not Europe. They then spread to Crete and Santorini. As Akrotiri was therefore destroyed after the Hyksos fled Egypt, Rohl dates the Thera eruption to 1100BC, also giving a placement for the 18th dynasty of Egypt due to its Mycenaean connections. We look forward to being able to read both Trevor's paper and David Rohl's book in the future. ...
45. New Scenarios for Solar System Evolution [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... millennium, there is no good understanding of the causes of the various environmental downturns noted in the tree-ring records. In 1984 Val LaMarche and Kathy Hirschboeck pointed out a severe frost ring in their Californian bristlecone pine tree-ring record relating to the calendar year 1627 BC. Their suggestion that this frost event might have been due to the eruption of the Santorini volcano in the Aegean is still a source of active debate. Flavio Barbiero, Centro Camuno di Studi Preistorici, Capodiponte, Italy: Changes in the Rotation Axis of Earth After Asteroid Or Cometary Impacts Evidence exists that the poles have changed position during the recent past in a very rapid way - in a matter of days. This possibility ...
46. Book Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the dinosaurs died out over millions of years - which rather takes the impact out of any real catastrophic view of extinctions. After these two chapters, which are refreshingly rather less stereotyped than usual, discussions about Atlantis and the Great Flood come as an anti-climax. After producing counter-arguments to many Atlantean scenarios he eventually settles for the old chestnut of Santorini. There is certainly no hint here to back up the rumour of a Russian expedition supposedly finding evidence of ruins in the Atlantic. The Flood mythology is eventually dismissed as due to local phenomena, which is a lame finish to discussions and maps showing how widespread and similar are the flood myths from around the world. Strangely, Rezanov ...
47. 2nd SIS Cambridge Conference Abstracts [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Irish sub-fossil oak chronologies appeared to line up with large acidities in the Greenland ice records from Camp Century and Dye3. Three of the events, at tree-ring ages 2345 BC, 1628 BC and 1159 BC turned out to be of particular interest as they contributed to debates on the Hekla 4 eruption in Iceland, dated to 2310 20 CalBC, Santorini in the Aegean, dated to circa 1670-1530 CalBC, and, possibly, Hekla 3, linked by Hammer and colleagues to their 1120 30 BC acid layer. It quickly became apparent, most notably through comments from Kevin Pang, that the two later events might relate in some way to the start and end of the Chinese Shang dynasty ...
48. The Nature and Scale of an Exodus Catastrophe Reassessed [Journals] [SIS Review]
... to have been volcanic in origin. Rejecting the usual sandstorm explanation (again, too commonplace an event), he drew parallels instead with the pall of darkness which is often a feature of major volcanic eruptions. While Phythian-Adams looked to Africa for the volcanic activity responsible for these effects, more recently they have been linked with the eruption of Santorini/Thera (Bennett 1963: 127-56; Goedicke 1987; Wilson 1985: 115-127). Cores from the Nile Delta have confirmed that tephra from Thera reached as far as Egypt (Stanley and Sheng 1986), but whether it reached there in sufficient quantity to obscure the Sun has been doubted (Slade 1990: 5-6). This ...

... crater 3.2 km in diameter and a pyroclastic flow which killed 62 people. The death count was low because very few people lived in the region, but the blast created a wasteland with an area greater than 500 square kilometres within a few minutes [8 ]. Figure 2: Vesuvius from Pompeii Figure 3: The cliffs of Santorini, which are the walls of the caldera formed by the Bronze Age eruption of Thera. Yet the Mount St Helens eruption only had a Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) of 5 out of a possible 8. Moving up the scale, the Bronze Age eruption of Thera in the Eastern Mediterranean, which seems to have destabilised the Minoan ...

... of time scales. Fortunately, the differences among these various time scales are usually not great, at least within the Holocene. To the best of my knowledge, no complete time scale for Dye 3 has as yet been published. A partial scale has appeared in Hammer, Clausen, Friedrich, and Tauber, "The Minoan Eruption of Santorini in Greece Dated to 1645 BC?" Nature, 6 August 1987, page 518. They equate a depth of 1227.5 meters with 1645 B.C .; this, together with the two graphs that they provide, confirms that a depth of 1200 meters would date from a little over 3500 years ago. This is ...
