Old volcano experiment?

    A few years ago I read something about and experiment to create a volcano. This would have been back in Victorian or Edwardian times. I was reminded about it whilst talking to a friend about daft experiments we did as children. As I recall you took a large quantity of sulphur 20lb/10kg or more. Then you dug a hole in the ground and buried it. It reacted with water and swelled up and started an exothermic reaction.

    Trouble is I can't find any details of this online. Not that I can obtain enough sulphur to replicate it or that I want to as it wouldn't be very environmental. I'd just like to find out how they did it. So I thought this would be the ideal place to ask.

    This will be the Victorian era or the Edwardian period. When I talked to a friend about the stupid experiment we were doing write my dissertation, I was reminded. This is very common. We use time as a convenient "excuse" to come. Why we have not created more tendencies.
