I have been browsing some old Prints-Illustrated-London-News and came across this.Cannot make out the print , but was there a volcanic eruption in South Africa at anytime in 1879.

It’s possible that it not even related to SA. But I looking at Zulu war articles.

Comments Welcome.

Hi Littlehand,

I think you'll find that this is referring to Mount Etna, the eruption began on 26th May and lasted until 5th June 1879, it was noted for the uncommonly long lava stream of 16km (10 miles).

Cheers
Bookworm
