Le sujet de cet article est la relation proposee par plusieurs specialistes entre le fabuleux orage, la crue et les destructions relates dans le texte de la Stele de la Tempete d'Ahmosis, l'eruption du volcan de l'ile de Thera (Cyclades) a la fin de l'Age du Bronze. Si elle est etablie, cette relation aurait un impact considerable sur la chronologie du monde egeen, la nature des relations egypto-egeennes et la credibilite de la datation dendro-vulcanologique. Selon l'auteur, cette hypothese ne… 

Dating the Theran Eruption: Archaeological Science Versus Nonsense Science

Various attempts have been made to ascribe the story of the Exodus to a particular time and place. The most common proposal is to place the Exodus just before the period of the Judges and the United
