 Exodus To Arthur (Mike Baillie)
The best early candidate for an example of this volcano/catastrophe scenario was the massive eruption on the Mediterranean island of Thera, circa 1450 BC which had severe effects on the advanced Minoan civilization based on nearby Crete.
This conflicted with the date of 1390 (+- 50) BC which ice-core workers had identified for a major eruption.
This led Baillie to explore other sources of knowledge for the 2nd millenium BC, for instance in the middle of the millenium the Xia dynasty in China came to an end, being replaced by the Shang dynasty.
