Isle of Man :First Stamps for 2013

\"\"The Chronicles of Man and the Lewis Chessmen will feature on a set of six stamps from January 11 to coincide with Manx National Heritage\’s exhibition which runs until March 9 next year. The stamps were revealed this morning at a photo launch at the Manx Museum.The Chronicles are the earliest written accounts of the Island and document many of the most significant events of the medieval age. The Manx nation is fortunate enough to be able to witness the temporary return of these legendry, medieval ,manuscripts and the loan of a selection of the wonderful Lewis Chessmen in an outstanding display at the Manx Museum. The chronicles were written by monks at Rushen Abbey and have been in the collections of the British Library for over two hundred years.
