Two olive oils that were buried from the volcanic eruption of Santorini allowed scientists to date with the best possible accuracy the time of the eruption. According to two scientists from a Danish University, Dr Valter Friedrich and Dr Valter Couchera, this destructive eruption must have happened in 1613 B.C., with a deviation of more or less ten years. As they say, other measurements on the islets close to Santorini and in the Nile Delta, Egypt, which the lava is believed to had reached, coincides with the radiocarbon dating of these two olive oils.
