A free academic seminar in Douglas, Isle of Man will uncover recent research to unveil the Forgotten Kingdom.
The event, organised by Manx National Heritage, co-incides with an exhibition featuring six of the Lewis Chessmen and the return of the Chronicles of the Kings of Man and the Isles, which runs until 9 March.
