Underwater Clues to Isle of Man's Prehistory?

A scientist from Douglas (Isle of Man) who is helping explore and visualise the underwater landscape of the Southern North Sea is hoping that the same technology could help historians firm up dates when the island was populated. Simon Fitch is in the second year of a PhD in geoarchaeology at Birmingham University... continues...

Archaeology in the Isle of Man

This is the personal site of David J. Radcliffe who has spent some time photographing and recording a range of sites, including neolithic, bronze age and disputed antiquity.

I highly recommend taking a look at his list of sites before visiting as he lists a lot of places not currently on TMA.

Cashtal yn Ard (Chambered Cairn) — Fieldnotes

Helpfully signposted off the A2 in the village of Glen Mona this is easy to find though the single-track road is very narrow with few passing-places and there's a ford to cross before the final section. As Kammer says, parking is tight; given that I'd found a postcard with a picture of the monument, and it's clearly the biggest of its kind on the island, I had expected a layby at least but hey, I'm not complaining, I'm just glad to have made it here before the rain starts with the wind whistling through the high branches in the copse of tall trees nearby lending the site an appropriately ethereal atmosphere. My only real gripe is that the surrounding fence is just a little too close (shades of Torhousekie and Cairnholy in Galloway), it would be nicer if the site were a bit more open like its better-preserved English brethren at West Kennet and Wayland's Smithy. I'd had the same feeling earlier in the day at The Mull Circle, another fine monument seeming just a tad hemmed-in by its fence. ironstone Posted by ironstone
