Tree Stories
The rings on a tree tell a tale - each ring holds clues about that particular year. This radio broadcast reports on an archaeologist who is using the rings to date events in ancient history. This method produces an unconventional date for the Thera volcano eruption, which may cause a rewriting of Mediterranean history. The clip is 2 minutes in length.
