Manning, Sturt

Sturt W. Manning is Director of the Cornell Tree Ring Laboratory and Professor of Classical Archaeology, at Cornell University(c). His interests focus on two main areas: (i) archaeological science including especially dating and climate history, and (ii) east Mediterranean archaeology and its wider connections. He has appeared in these pages dealing mainly with the chronology of the Middle East and in particular the dating of the 2nd-millennium eruption of Thera.

A great number of his papers are available on the website(a), including ‘notes on dating the Late Minoan IB period on Crete, and implications for Cretan-Egyptian relations in the 15th-century bc (and especially LM II).’ (b).

A 2022 review of Manning’s statistical work on the dating of Thera’s eruption is worth a read(d),>as is a paper entitled The Thera (Santorini) Volcanic Eruption and the Absolute Chronology of the Aegean Bronze Age(e), which in turn is intended as a companion to Manning’s 1999 book A Test of Time [0957] (not to be confused with a book of the same name by David Rohl).

A number of other papers on a variety of subjects by Manning are available at the Cornell University (Classics Department) website(f).<
