Dendrochronological dating of the uluburun ship
In the exhibit, you can find a ship that represents a real-life representation of the ship near the wreckage, which came from the Levantine origin.Some believe it also may have come from Cypriot as well.The ship was located near the city of Kas which is located in Antalya.
This rich collection of papers by an international authorship, deriving from a conference held at Cornell University in honor of Peter Kuniholm, provides wide-ranging and up-to-date discussions and assessments on a number of key topics concerning the chronology and environment of the central to east Mediterranean and Near East and the field of dendrochronology. Summers) The Rise and Fall of the Hittite Empire in the Light of Dendroarchaeological Research (Andreas Muller-Karpe) Aegean Absolute Chronology: Where did it go wrong?
The debate over what happened around AD536-540 gets a look in also, along with papers exploring the relevance of dendrochemical approaches to identifying past environmental events (such as major volcanic eruptions), and a review of work on timberline dynamics and climate change in Greece.

Peter Ian Kuniholm should be proud that this volume bears his name, as it is an appropriate reflection of the impact of his work.'" Journal of Ancient Egyptian Interconnections "This is an excellent book, a fitting testament to Kuniholm’s contribution to our understanding of Aegean prehistory, and a rich source of interest and information for archaeologists, dendrochronologists and climatologists.
This includes controversy - with a set of papers addressing the current debate over the dating of the great Santorini/Thera volcanic eruption in the mid second millennium BC; and famous sites and finds, including a report on the absolute dating of the extraordinary Uluburun ship of the late 14th century BC, and papers concerned with the dating and interpretation of important sites and topics such as Gordion, Akrotiri on Thera, the rise and fall of the Hittite empire, and the Anatolian Iron Age.
