The people above are from the tragic event which took place in 79 AD. The small village of Pompeii was frozen in time when the volcano Vesuvius eruption occurred. The people of Pompeii died many ways, burning, suffocation and being crushed by debris. When archaeologists uncovered the city, they found pockets of dust and ash and filled them with plaster and waited until it dried. When they dusted them off the next morning, there were shapes of bodies. This shows how hot it was and how quickly the bodies deteriorated.

in April 1815 the Mount Tambora volcano exploded witch is the largest volcanic eruption in recorded history. It is now 2,851 meters high it lost most of its top in the 1815 eruption which killed up to 92,000 in West Nusa Tenggara.

Volcanoes are formed when magma from the Earth's upper mantle works its way to the surface. At the surface, it erupts to form lava. Over time as the volcano continues to erupt and it will slowly get bigger and bigger.
