A Guide to the Archaeological Sites of the Isle of Man
by Andrew Johnson and Allison Fox
If you’d wondered where you can find an Iron Age hillfort, a Bronze Age burial or a giant’s grave, then this is the book for you. Featuring over eighty locations, including stone circles, carved crosses, parish churches, castles, Bronze Age and Iron Age settlements, A Guide to the Archaeological Sites of the Isle of Man is an ideal companion for anyone wanting to explore these treasures and learn more about the complex history of the Manx people from earliest times.
The guide is pocket-size and is lavishly illustrated in full colour, with each site accompanied by a location map, details of how to get there and information on access and overview of Manx archaeology by Dr Peter Davey. The text for each entry, written by two of the Island’s leading archaeologists, Andrew Johnson and Allison Fox of Manx National Heritage, brings together the latest research and interpretations in an informative and accessible way, and references to further reading are provided for those who might want to delve deeper into the academic analysis of the sites.
Illustrated with photographs, maps and other information throughout, Culture Vannin is delighted to share this unique publication which will be popular with walkers and everyone interested in history and heritage.
