Iceland’s Laki Volcano Eruption (Moduhardindin, 1783)

“On 8 June, 1783, the young country of Iceland – inhabited for less than 1,000 years – had a population of 50,000. In the coming years, as a result of what began that Sunday morning at 9am, 10,000 of those people would die…The noxious fog travelled down through Norway, Germany, France and across to Britain, causing panic when farm labourers began dropping like flies. People at this time had no idea where the fog had come from or that sulphur dioxide was mixing with water vapour in the lungs to choke victims. Research into parish records has led to estimates of more than 20,000 deaths in Britain alone during the summer of 1783.”
