"I'll give it a look and then see if I can get some backup from something else. I have been suspicious of dating since they got the Thera explosion date wrong by 400 years on the short side."
The Thera explosion was in 1628BC, same time as the Exodus. Thera was their "Staff by day, torch by night."

If you remember when they started digging around on Thera the expert opinion was that the explosion occured around 1200 +/- and destroyed both mainland Greed and Minoan civilizations.
Tree rings and Ice Cores proved that wrong, when on for quite a while if I remember right, 10/15 years.
