An annual commemoration marking the execution of a 17th Century figure considered by many to be a Manx patriot, is taking place.
Illiam Dhone was executed by firing squad
William Christian - known as Illiam Dhone - surrendered the Isle of Man to Parliamentary forces during the English Civil War in 1651.
After the Restoration, he was accused of treason and sentenced to death by firing squad on 2 January 1663.
The ceremony takes place where he was killed at Hango Hill, near Castletown.
Christian's Manx name literally means "Brown William", after the colour of his hair.
Castletown is the ancient capital of the island.
