As a small island in the middle of the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man is a distinctive and easily defined geographical unit with an interesting history of development. This thesis evaluates the polished stone axe-heads that have been acquired by the Manx Museum since its foundation in 1922 in an attempt to understand more about the island during later prehistory. Until recently, these stone axe-heads had only been subjected to a cursory analysis as part of a larger, on-going study of axe-heads undertaken in the United Kingdom. A more comprehensive review of the Manx collection is therefore overdue. In the following pages, the procurement, manufacture and disposal of axeheads on the Isle of Man will be discussed.
