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).

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!
