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 Preston. On the way to Preston, 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 cost of this study tour is £972 per person in a single room and £857 per person sharing a twin room.
Please note, in order to be sure of booking hotel rooms, we must have confirmation by Monday, 22 January at the very latest.

EMAS has reluctantly decided to cancel this year’s study tour to Lyon, owing to the difficulty of finding an acceptable and affordable hotel.
The popularity of Lyon at Whitsun has meant that it has proved impossible to find a centrally-located hotel at a realistic price.
However, as many people expressed an interest in the proposed itinerary for this trip, it is proposed that we run it next year, but start bookings late this year in order to secure a suitable hotel.
