Volume: 72 Issue: 3-4 Date: 2015
In recent years discussions of the chronology of the Bronze and Iron Ages in the Eastern Mediterranean has played a major role in research, with special focus on the dating of the Minoan eruption of the Thera volcano. Historical and radiocarbon dating in some cases appear to produce different results. The discussions are publicised with much passion and conviction and by some scientists with propaganda, with lobbying and repetitive publication. Time’s Up! presents the papers of a conference in Denmark which offered a forum for these discussions. The volume is reviewed in-depth.
