Excavations in Toba

The just of it:

Archaeological sites in India show the effects of the Toba volcanic eruption 74 000 years ago.
Oxford University and Indian institutions say the excavations are similar to Pompeii.

"The seven-year project examines the environment that humans lived in, their , as well as the plants and animal bones of the time. The team has concluded that many forms of life survived the super-eruption, contrary to other research which has suggested significant animal extinctions and genetic bottlenecks."
