2019

Saturday 2 March

Presidential Address
Andrew Johnson - Curator, Field Archaeology/ Inspector of Ancient Monuments, Manx National Heritage

The Coastal Defence of the Isle of Man c.1530-1870

The control and protection of the 100-mile coastline of the Isle of Man has preoccupied our forebears for thousands of years, leaving us a legacy of Iron Age promontory forts, medieval ‘watch and ward’ stations, and artillery fortifications dating from the 16th to the 19th centuries.  The latter were last considered in detail by Robert Curphey in the 1960s and the speaker will reassess the evidence for these coastal forts and gun emplacements in the light of new fieldwork and documentary evidence.

 

Saturday 30 March at 2.00 pm
Annual General Meeting, followed by

Adrian Cowin, Ronaldsway Meteorological Office
Meteorology on Mann 

The Senior Meteorological Officer will talk about the weather and climate of our Island in the past, present and future.
