51. Site Destructions and Discontinuities in the Bronze Age [Articles]
... words, we are dealing with plates. These are some of the divisions of the plates. I want to refer very briefly to some of the hypotheses of what destroyed the various civilisations, so let's just very briefly take up the destruction of the Minoan, that's the great sea power there. Here is the little island of Thera, Santorini. The Minoans had been trading with Egypt- I believe they were known as the Keftiu, has that been identified?- and then suddenly they disappeared. Here there are Minoans dressed just like they are in their home town bringing the same pottery, and then suddenly no more of them. And the Egyptians had, as you ...
52. Ice Cores of Greenland [Books] [de Grazia books]
... to, drilled at Camp Century, Greenland [6 ], exhibits the following characteristics on its test of "acid rain" fallout. 1390 50 BC. This is the only signal exceeding 2.6 uequiv H + Kg-1 between 1100 and 2700 BC, and we therefore interpret it as being due to the large eruption of Thera (Santorini) in the Aegean Sea, which is generally agreed to have been of the same magnitude as that of Tambora (1815). The tephra production has recently been estimated at more than 28 km3 (13 km3 of dense rock equivalent) [7 ]. This unusually large eruption has been radio-carbon dated at 1720 50 BC on the ...
53. Review: A Bronze Age Disaster. Exodus to Arthur: Catastrophic encounters with comets, by M.G.L. Baillie [Journals] [SIS Review]
... cite no less an authority than the dates of Ussher (yes, the 17th-century Archbishop!), taken from the margins of an old Bible: Interestingly Usher [sic], who attempted to put a timescale on the happenings in the Old Testament, suggested a date of 1491BC for the Exodus, which is only 137 years out if Santorini did erupt in 1628 BC, and less if the more conservative sixteenth-century date for the eruption was to prove correct' (p . 98). Only 137 years? What can one say? After 1628BC, Baillie does not exactly turn to his next event' in 1159BC. The book jumps about from century to century, throwing ...
54. Sagan's fourth problem: Terrestrial Geology And Lunar Craters (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... ... The researchers found that the magnetic signatures at archaeological sites on eastern Crete were identical to one another. They differed though from sites on central Crete where the ages were consistent... They also were surprised to observe that the direction and intensity of magnetic signals for central Crete matched those of the heavy ash fall deposits on Santorini, whereas the directions from sites in eastern Crete matched those of the deposits that followed the volcano's paroxysmal eruption. During this second phase, the volcano collapsed forming the huge caldera." This evidence corroborates the evidence from Loch Lomond and Lake Windermere of geomagnetic changes around 3,500 years ago. In fact, two West German scientists ...
55. In Search of the Exodus [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... represented a breeding ground for insects, bacteria, and sickness. All very persuasive- and yet a single earthquake seems too little to affect the consciousness of a whole people, a multitude numbering in the thousands. Others have visualized the hail and fire falling from the sky as the ash and pumice of a giant volcanic eruption, such as Santorini experienced in the Aegean, or one in Sinai.  Garstang, who excavated at Jericho, suggested that at the time of Exodus the fault line of the Rift Valley, from Palestine to Lakes Tanganyika and Malawi in Africa was in a state of seismic hemorrhage. Ian Wilson claims the Santorini eruption may have sent a tidal ...

57. Recent Developments In Near Eastern Archaeology. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... hangs on Thera's date. The Danish Polar Centre's web site gave the following update in May 2002: After more than a year's fiddling work, the analyses are now so far that Claus Hammer and Gero Kurat are close to the final proof. It does look all right, because we have found ashes with the same chemical composition as on Santorini [Thera], but still some investigations of the glass particles in the ice are lacking before we can be absolutely sure. ' Readers may recall that attempts to find Theran ash particles in another ice core (GISP2) proved' that Thera did not erupt in 1628 BC (the date favoured by tree ring specialists) because the ...

... than was previously thought possible". It may be too early for us to postulate an "anti-greenhouse effect", but we should like to hear what readers think of the idea. Dating Thera Eruption sources: NATURE 307, p.l21; NEW SCIENTIST 26.1 .84, p.24 The great eruption of Thera/Santorini in the second millenium BC has recently been dated by use of the bristlecone pine chronology. Examining the bristlecone pine record, LaMarche and Hirschboek have identified a "frost signature" which recurs in the bristlecone pine record at irregular intervals and which appears to be related to major volcanic eruptions. For instance, the Krakatoa eruption of 1883 provided ...
59. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... The September issue of NEW SCIENTIST carries a longer piece with the message that everything is solved, from Atlantis to Exodus, trotting out the familiar equations: however, in October a letter from P. M. S. Jones of the University of Surrey seriously questions the new work. Jones notes that (1 ) the geographical separation of Santorini and Crete make for differences in the declination and inclination of the geomagnetic field, so results will not be comparable and (2 ) that crustal movements over the last 3500 years will have disturbed the original inclination in this seismically active region.

THERA Hammer, Clausen, and Dansgaard, "Greenland Ice Sheet Evidence of Post-Glacial Volcanism and Its Climatic Impact", Nature, 20 November 1980, page 233, identify an acidity peak at 1390 50 B.C . "as being due to the large eruption of Thera (Santorini) in the Aegean Sea". A somewhat more detailed discussion is provided by Hammer, "Acidity of Polar Ice Cores in Relation to Absolute Dating, Past Volcanism, and Radio-Echoes", Journal of Glaciology 25 (1980), pages 369-370, where we are told that: "The Camp Century ice core is the only Greenland ...
