Concise History of the Isle of Man
Man became an island as the glaciers of the last Ice Age retreated and the sea level rose around ten thousand years ago
Was first settled during the Iron Age
50 - 450 occupied by the Romans
1000 was subjected to Viking raids
Until 1266 the Isle of Man was owned by Norway
It was a separate country with its own King
1300's - 1500's sovereignty passes between Scotland, Ireland and England
Manx is a Celtic language spoken on the Isle of Man and is closely related to the now extinct Irish dialects of Ulster and Galloway
In 1313 Robert the Bruce, the King of Scotland invaded
In 1334 Edward III became the Isle of Man's first English king
In 1405 Henry IV gave the Isle of Man to the Stanley family and it later passed to the Dukes of Athol
It was used extensively by smugglers as its position and virtual independence made it difficult for the British to prosecute
In addition to the smugglers a local Manx law meant that debts in England and Ireland could not be recovered in the Isle of Man
The Isle of Man therefore provided sanctuary for vast numbers of debtors and other profligates
In 1765 the third Duke was induced to surrender the regality and customs duties to the Crown for 70,000 and an annuity of 2,000 allowing prosecution
In 1829, the British Government acquired all remaining privileges from the Dukes of Athol for a lump sum payment of 410,000
1914 - 1918 WW1
1939 - 1945 WW11
August 1945 The United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki
During the 1900'S the Island achieved a large measure of self-government as a Crown dependancy
The Island's democratically elected government exercises full control of its internal affairs and territorial waters - the Island's Parliament is called the Tynwald
The ancient Manx Celtic language is still used on road name signs and taught as a specialist subject in Manx schools.
