Hi Jonny

exellent work and an accurate one. Thank you for have submitted it here.

I would like to spend some words about Thera Eruption (or Minoan Eruption) and its datation.

All data acquired till now, IMHO does not give, the out of any doubt proof, of the Eruption's exact date
or well definied timeframe of it, and so the Ballet datation will again continue.
Personally I propend toward archaeological dates, based on many and many finds which lead toward a quite
good timeframe of that.
It is also important to be aware that Thera Eruption (or Minoan Eruption) did not heavily affected the
Minoan settlement and civility in Crete.

Anyway a bunch od decades or just about one century, IMHO does not affetc at all the entire picture of
Bronze Age period, which it does not have a precise data and locality of when it Began and when it finished.

What it is of utmost importance is that with your work has been reinforced, as a mile stone, the datations of large
scale events using ice-core chronologies.
