Dominus Hibernie/Rex Hiberniae: pre-modern Ireland, 1200-1801 at The National ArchivesOver three days, leading historians will discuss their research on six centuries of Irish history.

Over six centuries institutions, policies and attitudes developed to enable the crown to tackle the challenges of governing Ireland and its inhabitants. The records which such processes generated are voluminous and afford rich, multi-faceted insights into the administration of pre-modern Ireland, its political and legal culture, its geography, environment, society, economy and trade.

This exciting conference will host keynote speakers, Professor Robin Frame (Durham University),  Professor Patricia Palmer (National University of Ireland, Maynooth), and Professor David Hayton (Queen’s University Belfast) alongside experts from a variety of different institutions and specialists from The National Archives.

Full conference and day tickets available. Prices start at £30.
