BOOK DESCRIPTIONThis volume is the first of its kind since Man and the Environment in the Isle of Man in 1978 and stems from a seminar held in January 1998 where many of the papers published here were read. The publication contains twenty-eight papers on a wide range ofsites and subjects, from the Manx Early Mesolithic to nineteenth century tobacco pipe works in Douglas as well as aerial photography, radiocarbon dates of the island and recent archaeological accessions to the Manx Museum. This book will stand as the basic work of reference for the island's archaeology for many years.AUTHORWith contributions from R. Barton, R. Bewley, K.A. Bornholdt, M. Boyd, S. Burrow, R.C.
