The last in Rushen Heritage Trust’s season of talks at the Erin Arts Centre takes place on Monday, May 16th, with Manx National Heritage’s Curator of Archaeology Allison Fox.
Allison will take the audience Around the South in 30 Objects as she explores the history of the south of the Island, presenting a specially curated discussion of the familiar, and not so familiar, artefacts that have been discovered and the stories that they tell.
Allison has been Curator of Archaeology at MNH since 2002, having achieved a Bachelor of Science degree in Archaeological Sciences from the University of Bradford, going on to work in the Borders, Kent, Shetland and Inverness before returning home to the Isle of Man.
She has a Master’s degree in Museum Studies, and is an associate of the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists and of the Museums Association.  Her role at MNH is to look after the wonderfully varied archaeological artefacts in the Manx National Collections and also to help interpret the Island’s heritage.

The talk starts at 7.30pm (doors 7pm), with tickets £5 (£4 for Friends of Rushen Heritage Trust) available from Erin Arts Centre (, Rushen Heritage Centre, Bridge Bookshop, and Erin News (all in Port Erin).

This talk is rescheduled from January, when it was postponed because of Covid. If you purchased tickets for January, and would like to transfer them to the new date in May (or obtain a refund), please contact RHT Coordinator John Quirk at or on 464634.
Erin Arts Centre is encouraging visitors to wear face masks if they wish and to use the hand sanitiser provided. On the day of the talk, we would also recommend doing a lateral flow test before attending.
