Images relating to the exhibition 'Volcanoes' held in the ST Lee Gallery, Weston Library, Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford
10 February 2017 to 21 May 2017

"From fire-belching mountains to blood-red waves of lava, volcanoes have captured the attention of scientists, artists and members of the public for centuries. In this exhibition, discover a spectacular selection of eye witness accounts, scientific observations and artwork charting how our understanding of volcanoes has evolved over the past two millennia.
Discover the impact of some of the world's most spectacular volcanoes including the AD 79 eruption of Vesuvius, one of the most catastrophic eruptions in European history, and the 19th-century eruptions of Krakatoa and Santorini, two of the first volcanic eruptions to be intensely studied by modern scientists.
Featuring fragments of 'burnt' papyrus scrolls which were buried during the AD 79 eruption of Vesuvius, the earliest known manuscript illustration of a volcano, and notes from 19th-century volcanologists and explorers, this spectacular collection brings together science and society, art and history."
