Holiday reading.....?
Order it now and you'll have it for the beach time....or, of course, you can pop down to Naples and see it for yourself, hoping it won't erupt again while you're there!

Vesuvius is the only volcano in the European mainland that erupted in historical times.

This volcano is currently under a temporary sleep by more than six decades, but scientists warn that the next big eruption could be as big as that one in AD 79, which buried the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum and killed roughly 16,000 people.

The crater is 1280m tall and located just 20km (12 miles) away from Naples, Italy's third largest city. But today, the population living around the volcano is about 3 million; at least 300,000 of those living nearby would be killed by the next eruption if not evacuated beforehand, according to the first three-dimensional computer simulation of an eruption.
