Volcanoes that were active in the Archean eon (before approximately 2500 million years ago) in Precambrian time. Note that virtually no mountain belts of any notable topographical relief survive from this eon, so all surviving volcanic remnants are embedded in mostly-flat continental cratons, such as in greenstone belts or very large well-preserved supervolcanoes.

  • Preceded by Hadean volcanism, which at first covered the entire planet.
  • Succeeded by volcanoes in the Proterozoic eon.
