/ Isle of Wight School Trip Subjects / History
The Isle of Wight is one of the world's most highly regarded fossil and dinosaur locations with internationally important Cretaceous deposits and rare fossil finds. It is also notably rich in archaeology presenting a wealth of opportunities to discover evidence for Prehistoric, Roman, Saxon, Medieval and Victorian life through an array of historic landscapes, preserved buildings and interactive museums. The Island's unique position off the south coast of England has given it a focus for invasion and defence throughout the ages and you can enjoy a rich legacy of maritime heritage, especially shipwrecks and fortifications.
