The Isle of Wight Ingot Hoard was their legacy from the Iron Age and other hoards have also been found. Some Roman villas have also been found on the Isle of Wight, as have the remains of dinosaurs. Of course, the Isle of Wight is famous for the regatta at Cowes.

Accidents at sea
If you are a passenger on a cruise ship or a crew member and have an accident on board, you may be able to claim compensation for injuries arising from an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness. For example, if you are hit on the head by a falling object, or if a life boat crashes down on you, you and your accident solicitor could probably prove that the item or lifeboat had not been properly put in position by a crew member and this would amount to negligence on their behalf.
If you are the victim of an accident at sea (or one on board an aircraft, or at an airport) you only have two years to file a claim for your injuries, whereas you would normally have three years to make a clam for injuries sustained in an accident in the UK.
