London Volcano will sit, resplendant, on the west lawn of London’s Natural History Museum for Universities UK Week, from 9 – 13 June; with a special ‘late night opening’ on June 11th. It will be the backdrop to a week-long programme of activities that will explore what it is like to live near an active and erupting volcano; to think about what we can learn about living with volcanoes, and recovering from the consequences of volcanic eruptions; and to see how modern technologies allow us to probe the inner workings of volcanoes from a safe distance.
