Vesuvius is probably best known for the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum, but it has erupted over 50 times since AD79. Two million people live in the immediate vicinity, in the shadow of this active and potentially dangerous volcano. This talk will look at why there are active volcanoes around the Bay of Naples today, and the effects of historic volcanic events, before considering the threat of future eruptions.  The talk will conclude by looking at the various strategies that are being developed to protect residents, tourists and property from volcanic hazards in the Naples region.

John has travelled extensively studying physical geography and writing articles on landscapes and natural hazards. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a member of the Geographical Association.
