More stories of volcanoes…

Remember our Secrets of the Ash event last March, when Icelandic author Yrsa Sigurðardóttir was joined by Richard Wall of UCL’s Department of Earth Sciences, and they told us all about how volcanoes work and their impact on local populations? Well, here’s another event on volcanoes (in warmer climes), literature and the arts. Drawing on the collections of UCL Institute of Archaeology, Museums & Collections and Special Collections, London-based artist John Murphy assembles objects relating to Mount Vesuvius and to some of the many stories, real and imagined, engendered by the figure of the volcano.
