An Indonesian Pompeii

NPR : Culture Destroyed by 1815 Volcano Rediscovered
With all the Archaeology around lately, I might need a seperate category for it! This time we go to the Island of Tambora, which was rocked by one of the greatest volcanic eruptions in recorded history, the 1815 volcanic eruption of Tambora. This eruption was so large, it affected global climate, causing a nuclear winter culminating in the “year without a summer”.
University of Rhode Island volcanologist Haraldur Sigurdsson has found evidence and lots of artifacts from the culture wiped out by this titanic blast, buried under volcanic ash.
An Indonesian Pompeii!
