Over the last 15 years he has worked extensively on the application of Bayesian statistical methods to the study of chronology in both Archaeology and Quaternary environmental research.

The two researchers said their find (olive tree) represents a serious contradiction between the results of the scientific method (radiocarbon dating) and scholarly work in the humanities (history-archaeology), with both sides holding strong arguments to support their conclusions. Begin of Babylonian “dark ages.” 1550 BC Kingdom of Mittani is founded. The upshot is, the pushing back of the date of the supposed super-eruption means the Egyptian chronology -- which is already out of whack anyway, padded as it was by goofballs in the 19th century –- has to be stretched backward another 100-150 years, screwing up any synchronisms established between Egyptian chronology and other civs of the Near East and Med.

The radiocarbon dating places the cataclysmic eruption, blamed for heralding the end to the Minoan civilisation, a century earlier than previous scientific finds. There was no super-eruption of Thera in historical times, or in late prehistoric times. The only surviving ancient record of an eruption on Thera dates to about 200 BC, and Herodotus discusses the island at length, and never mentions it -- no doubt because he lived before 200 BC.

βασίστηκε σε συγκριτικές μελέτες της τεχνικής των έργων αγγειοπλαστικής που βρέθηκαν στις ανασκαφές του Ακρωτηρίου και άλλα ιστορικά στοιχεία.Η θεωρία όμως αυτή, καθώς και η θεωρία του Σπυρίδωνα Μαρινάτου περί καταστροφής του Μινωικού πολιτισμού από το τσουνάμι της έκρηξης, ανατράπηκαν από την τελευταία χρονολόγηση με την μέθοδο του ραδιενεργού άνθρακα σε ένα κλαδί ελιάς που βρέθηκε θαμμένο στην τέφρα της έκρηξης.

Αυτή η χρονολόγηση τοποθετεί την έκρηξη μεταξύ 16 π.Χ., πιθανότατα την περίοδο 1613-1614.
