Course Description

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 will explore these events and examine how mankind has been affected by them in many ways few realize, from a near extinction of the human race to an 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 is in store for us in the future. Be prepared for fun, learning, and adventure. Lecture (plus Questions)Viewing Videos
