Lisa, Johanna and Yael on Santorini dating

A really important article by Lisa, Johanna and Yael, on the complexity of dating of an olive branch from the Santorini/Thera volcanic eruption has just appeared.

The full reference is:

Ehrlich, Y., Regev, L. & Boaretto, E. Discovery of annual growth in a modern olive branch based on carbon isotopes and implications for the Bronze Age volcanic eruption of Santorini. Sci Rep 11, 704 (2021). https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-020-79024-4.

As I’m sure you know, Lisa and her team have done a lot of work (past, present and future) on various finds from Tell es-Safi/Gath.

Way to go!
