Small Islands, big history!

The Channel Islands may be small but they have a big history! Neolithic burial mounds, ancient chambers and cave inscriptions have been found, dating human inhabitants back to prehistoric times. Roman coin hoards, medieval castles and many military defences dating back to Napoleon’s time as well as ones from World War I and II show how desirable the islands were and make for a fascinating visit.
