Announcements

WINTER PROGRAMME 2022/2023.

Saturday 18 February
Dr Ben Guy, Cambridge University
Manaw of the Britons: The Pre-Viking Kings of the Isle of Man
This lecture considers the rulers in Man in one of the earliest periods of the Island’s recorded history, between the seventh and ninth centuries. It is argued that the Island was ruled by Britons, and that more can be said about them than is usually thought thanks to the voluminous corpus of medieval Welsh genealogy.

Saturday 25 March
Annual General Meeting at 2 pm
Followed by Katie King, Curator – Social History, Manx National Heritage
Museum 100 - Celebrating 100 Years of the Manx Museum
Join MNH Curator Katie King as she shares the fascinating story of the birth of the Manx Museum. A story which involves a ‘tenacious band of patriots’ determined to protect, collect and share the unique cultural heritage of the Isle of Man against all the odds. Thanks to their vision, the Manx Museum is now home to an extraordinary collection of artefacts and archives that help tell the story of the Isle of Man and its people.
