‘Mountain of God’: Volcano eruption is ‘imminent’, observers warn

Scientists monitoring an active volcano in northeastern Tanzania have warned that it could erupt at any moment, sparking fears for the some of the world’s oldest anthropological sites.

The peak, known to the Maasai tribe as the ‘Mountain of God,’ is less than 70 miles from Olduvai Gorge where human footprints dating back 4 million years have been discovered. Meanwhile, Engare Sero, the site of 400 footprints dating back 19,000 years, is just nine miles away from the volcano on the shores of Lake Natron.
