Trivia section[edit]

I've removed the following entries from the "Popular culture" section, since they appear to be wholly trivial mentions and are unsourced:

I am not familiar enough with non-scientific sources to source these, so I'll leave them here for the time being. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 10:30, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

Maintenance tag[edit]

I've addressed the sections issue, but I don't see problems with the tone or words. The section is long, yes, but we are talking about a geologically moderately complex volcano. Will ask the IP who placed the template. Jo-Jo Eumerus (talk, contributions) 21:23, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

Thank you. — 2601:183:4000:D57A:CC58:460E:D96E:F304 (talk) 21:24, 6 August 2016 (UTC)

Last eruption[edit]

The article states that the last eruption occurred between 150,000 and 200,000 years ago but the Global Volcanism Program website gives Kilimanjaro's last known eruption as unknown. It also makes the claim that a group of youthful-looking nested craters on the summit of Kibo are of apparent Holocene age. Volcanoguy 16:10, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

@Volcanoguy: The dates in question are radiometric dates obtained on lava flows, which the Nonnotte paper then describes as "last volcanicity". My personal theory is that the summit craters may be derived from later explosive activity that wasn't dated and could be much more recent than the dated lava flows.

Non-indigenous[edit]

No reports by Arabs prior to 1800? --Haruo (talk) 16:00, 20 November 2016 (UTC)
