About the Author

Sturt Manning is currently the Goldwin Smith Professor of Classical Archaeology, Director of the Malcolm and Carolyn Wiener Laboratory for Aegean and Near Eastern Dendrochronology at Cornell University, and Director of the Cornell Institute of Archaeology and Material Studies. He was previously a Lecturer, then Reader at the University of Reading, UK, following a PhD at Cambridge and earlier study in his native Australia (MA Hons, Macquarie University, BA Hons, Australian National University). His research interests cover Mediterranean archaeology (especially the Aegean, Cyprus and east Mediterranean), and archaeological science (especially dendrochronology, radiocarbon, and climate). For more information on publications, see


As with the first book, this new edition is bound to generate significant debate, which in time may lead to consensus on dating of this decisive eruption. Until then, Manning has once again provided a rich source of material that will impact the application of both absolute and relative chronologies in the Mediterranean region. * Journal of Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology and Heritage Studies *
