A massive eruption of the ‘Mountain of God’ volcano in Tanzania is imminent – and it could wipe out key sites in human history, scientists have warned.
Also known as Ol Doinyo Lengai, the 7,650ft (2,331m) volcano is less than 70 miles away from where footprints left by our ancestors 3.6 million years ago have been discovered.
And it is also close to a spot where 400 human footprints from 19,000 years ago have been found by scientists.
Researchers studying the tremors of the volcano have now warned it may erupt ‘any second’, destroying the invaluable sites forever.
