The Tynwald (or, more formally, the High Court of Tynwald) is the parliament of the Isle of Man and, at over 1,000 years old, is considered to be the oldest continuous parliamentary body in the world. It now begins each session in Douglas every July 5, when an outdoor public meeting takes place at Tynwald Hill in St. John’s, a mound where an open-air ceremony took place in the first millennium C.E. The day is a holiday on the Isle of Man, and Tynwald Hill is one of the most significant historic sites on the island.
