Toba, Thera, Tambora, Krakatoa, Vesuvius, and a host of other volcanoes have left footprints in history that cannot be erased. Aside from learning about the nature of volcanoes and their destructive forces, we'll explore these events and examine how mankind has been affected in many ways few realize, from the near extinction of the human race to their influence on the Bible. In addition, early investigations at one world-famous eruption site led directly to the birth of modern archaeology as a true science. We'll also explore Super Volcanoes and what's in store for us in the future. Be prepared for fun, learning, and adventure. Lecture (plus Questions).
