EMAS Spring Study Tour: Isle of Man


EMAS Spring Study Tour: Isle of Man
4 to 11 April 2018
Despite its small size, the Isle of Man has a wealth of archaeology. The sites cover all periods from prehistory to industrial archaeology and are often set in beautiful scenery. In addition to its wide range of field monuments, the Isle of Man has a huge collection of Viking Age sculptures, several of which show scenes from Norse mythology. 
We will leave London on Wednesday, 4 April and stay overnight in Lancaster. On the way to Lancaster, we will visit the church at Breedon on the Hill which houses important Anglo-Saxon sculptures and Repton church with its Anglo-Saxon crypt. The following day, after visiting the Early Christian site of St Patrick’s Chapel, alongside its rock-cut graves, we will cross to Man. 
We will stay in Douglas, which is the terminus for the island’s steam railway and the late nineteenth century Manx Electric Railway, both of which will feature in our itinerary.

The 2017 EMAS Easter study tour will examine the archaeology of Argyll and Bute, the island of Mull and the extremely important monastic site on the Island of Iona.
We will be based in Oban, which is situated on Oban Bay and home to one of the oldest single malt distilleries in Scotland. Nearby is Kilmartin Glen, which has one of the most important concentrations of Neolithic and Bronze Age remains in Scotland, while the broch, cairns and standing stones near An Sean Chaisteal are just one of the many fascinating sites on Mull.
