Discover Diving at the Manx Museum!

January 28, 2008

The first “Discover Diving” conference, held last year at the Manx Museum, was a resounding success, with standing room only in the Museum’s seminar room! Due to popular demand for the event, Manx National Heritage is pleased to say that this year’s event will be held in the main lecture theatre of the Museum on Saturday 1st March.

A range of specialist speakers will talk about all aspects of the underwater heritage of the Manx territorial waters, from sharks to shipwrecks! But there’ll also be speakers on the actual processes involved to get under the water. Those few people who have experienced diving will be sharing their expertise on a whole range of topics and sites so there should be something for everyone with an interest in the sea.

Curator of Archaeology for Manx National Heritage, Allison Fox said;
“We were really pleased with the turn out at the conference last year – there were many people with a general interest and also many members of the diving community on the Island. The programme of speakers is being confirmed at the moment, but will be announced a bit nearer the time. We hope that anyone with an interest or concern with the underwater environment around us will put the date of the conference in their diaries and we look forward to welcoming them to the Manx Museum on 1st March. ”

The event will start at 10.30am and finish at 4.30pm, with visitors welcome throughout the day. The conference is open to all those with an interest in the maritime heritage and admission is free.
