The head of the island is Elizabeth ll, who holds the title of Lord of Mann, and although the island is not a part of the United Kingdom its foreign relations and defence are the responsibility of the UK Government. Rising water levels cut off the Isle of Man from the surrounding islands around 8000 BC and evidence suggests that colonisation of the Isle took place by sea sometime before 6500 BC. The first residents lived in small natural shelters, hunting, fishing and gathering for their food and some of the artefacts that they used are kept at the Manx Museum.
