Mesolithic Period

The earliest traces of humans on the Isle of Man can be found as far back as the Mesolithic Period, also known as the Middle Stone Age. During this time humans were living in small natural shelters; hunting, fishing and gathering for their food. They used small flint tools made of stone or bone, which have been found on dry land near the coast. Some of these artifacts are kept at the Manx Museum, supporting the existence of such primitive people on the Isle of Man.
