Did you know that the carved stone crosses of the Isle of Man show many familiar Viking heroes? Many of these characters have appeared in comic books and you may have seen them appear in your favourite films. These carvings not only show Viking Gods and Goddesses, but their artwork also tells us about how Christianity was adapted into lives of people who lived on the Island and how their lives changed through the invasion and settlement of Scandinavian people.
Exciting news! Manx National Heritage has worked with partners at Lancaster University, the University of Southampton, and Knowledge Integration to create 3D digital images of all 210 of the Manx crosses. You can find them all here www.imuseum.im
