Forthcoming Events

Saturday 2 December 2017
Edmund Southworth, Director Manx National Heritage
Understanding Castle Rushen: 800 years of development

In the wake of a Conservation Management Plan for this most complete Island monument, this talk will review the complex sequence of construction and change in its historical context.  It will also look at current issues faced by Manx National Heritage associated with maintenance, access and presentation.


Saturday 20 January 2018
Dr Peter Davey
Rushen Abbey in the 12th Century:  when, where and why?

The results of the excavations carried out at the Abbey between 1998 and 2008 are now in the process of being assessed.  They have thrown much new light on many aspects of the Abbey’s plan and history, not least on the controversial question of the date and place of its origin.  The lecture will present some of the new evidence from the Island’s most important monastery and discuss how this affects understanding of the 12th century Manx scene as a whole.
