Isle of Man Features in 'The Dark Ages: An Age of Light'

BBC4 - The Dark Ages: An Age of Light

Season 1 Episode 4 of 4

The Men of the North In the final programme, Waldemar Januszczak turns his attention to the north of Europe, examining how Vikings marked their territory with rune stones, and decorated their long ships with intricate embellishment. He also investigates the jewellery and manuscript illumination created by the Irish and Anglo-Saxons, and examines how the Carolingians forecast their future as successors to Rome in the art they left behind. Last in the series



A Manx viking boat is featured, with the crew rowing the Director along the coast north of Peel - unlike some of those in the past, this boat did not have a bottle of vodka on optic fixed to the mast
There's also some comment on the Lonan Cross- including some confusing references to the Anglo-Saxons
