Centre for Manx Studies - "Finding the Celts"

Culture Vannin provided the Centre for Manx Studies with a grant for the project 'Finding the Celts', which aimed to locate sites belonging to the long Iron Age from the later Bronze Age through until the coming of the Vikings. Some important potential sites were identified through the work of the project.

The results have been disseminated at academic conferences in the UK and at the Centre for Manx Studies Research Day conference in Douglas. They have also been used in outreach to the public visiting the excavation sites, and in popular talks. The results of the Geophysical survey around Ballanorris and Ballacagen were used in a Community Heritage Initiative project with school to illustrate the effectiveness of the methods.
