    Has the Eruption of Eyjafjallajokull Affected You?

    Has anyone here been personally affected by the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull? Disrupted travel plans, trouble breathing, shortages of fresh fruit or vegetables?

    Here in America we are just observing from afar. Some Americans are stranded in Europe & there are Europeans stranded in America. FedEx & UPS have had some disruption to their deliveries. But otherwise we have not been affected.

    I have not been effected by travel plans, (as I live in the English countryside, which I think is the most beautiful place on earth, thus there is not point travelling to foreign places, because it would be an anti-climax), but the weather here in Northern England has gone very cold. In fact, if it was winter I would say it looks like it’s going to snow. The sky is totally white, and quite a contrast from the lovely sunshine we had a week ago.

    Not at all. I don't fly, so there are no holyday plans I would have to cancel. The air is very breatheable as usual and it's very sunny today. So I don't have much to complain about.
    The Indians did not stop the flood of immigrants - today they live in reservations.

    We had ash raining down in Norway, also winter came back. That may not caused by the volcano, but just standard Norwegian weather. All airports in several countries got closed, it would be great if the planes were put on the ground for good.
    I really hope Katla dosnt have an outbreak, but she is long overdue and there is a 75% chance she will awaken. With her two fellow volcanos that system is one of the most powerful in the world. Katla is not under a glacier so there will not be such a explosive force. Animals in Iceland are dying and my heart goes out to them and my brothers the icelanders.
    They can come back home to Norway any time.

    Here is some recent pictures from Iceland:




    I have not been affected by closed airports, I very rarely travel by plane.
    Keep in mind that this was just a small outbreak, if Katla awakens we will have more trouble. It might make the temprature fall in Scandinavia for many years.

    Any Prehistoric archaeologist knows the significance of this;

    Essentially, years ago what we would find is that towards the later Bronze-Age, loads of votive offering are going into bogs and watery place, with some of our best British material coming from this period, but we had no idea why?

    Also, you find that all the upland settlements in Britain are being abandoned, some of which called the ‘Celtic’ Field systems can be seen today in places like Salisbury Plain and upland regions of Northern England and Scotland. Again around this period (I can't remember dates as I am writing this off the top of my head) these regions are abandoned and we find that there is large scale bog growth and acidification of the soil in upland Britain. However, until we had the ice-core samples evidence from Greenland we had no idea what caused the late-Bronze age/Early Iron-Age collapse.

    Then we realized that there was a volcanic eruption in 1159 BC (Cunliffe, 2005) which lead temperatures in Western Europe to drop to Upper-Palaeolithic levels in the space of 40 years!!!!!

    If anybody wants to read up on this very interesting period, the I recommend; The Earlier Iron Age in Britain and the Near Continent edited by Colin Haselgrove and Rachel Pope (who is my thesis supervisor)

    Or slightly less academic but very good book by Mr Iron Age Barry Cunliffe; Iron age communities (2005) edition. Also Passage of Arms buy Richard Bradley is very good for understnading votive offering from this period.


    But only if you are sad archaeologist like me
