EXPLORE THE ISLE OF MAN.
Early colonisation of the Isle of Man dates to the Mesolithic era (6500BC), where early hunter gatherers first settled. Plus, fine examples of the Neolithic period in the form of megalithic monuments can still be seen throughout the Island.
The arrival of the iron age marked the appearance of Celtic influences such as forts on hill summits or promontory forts along the coastal headlands.
Around AD800 the first Vikings arrived on the Manx shores and their influences can still be witnessed today. And with the arrival of Christianity in the form of around 200 tiny early chapels
(keeils) being built, the Isle of Man is steeped in wonderfully preserved historical sites.
The Isle of Man also has a wealth of modern historical sites including fine examples of zinc and lead mines, old Manx farm buildings (known as Tholtans) along with heritage railway lines which were, and still are used by steam locomotives to date.
