Campaign Intensifies to Free "The Chronicles of the Kingdom of Mann and the Isles"

The campaign to have the "Chronicles of the kings of Mann and the Isles", a mediaeval manuscript compiled around 1257 A. D. returned to Isle of Man (Mannin) has intensified.  Written and compiled on the Island’s Rushen Abbey the Chronicles record major events in Manx history from 1000 A.D. to 1316 A.D. They look at the Islands place as the centre of the Kingdom of Mann and the Isles .
The calls for the return of “The Chronicles of the Kings of Mann and the Isles” from the British Library to their rightful place in the Isle of Man (Mannin), comes after the British Museum had agreed to return six of the Lewis chessmen to the Scottish Island of Lewis. The Norse chess pieces date from the 12th Century and were discovered in 1831 on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland (Scottish Gaelic: Leòdhas , Na h-Eileanan Siar, Alba) .
