"Eldhraun Lava Field"
Layed down by the Laki eruptions of 1783/1784 (565 sq km of lava), considered among the biggest and most poisonous eruptions of the earth during historical times. The consequences were enormous.  Between 53% and 82% of the domestic animals and 20% of the human population perished as a result, and crops in Europe were affected.
