Beyond 2022: Building the Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland (June 2022)

How do you rebuild a destroyed archive?
Over the past three years, an interdisciplinary team of postdoctoral researchers in Dublin, Belfast and London have been working to virtually recreate the archival collections, and the premises, of the Public Record Office of Ireland destroyed in the opening engagement of the Irish Civil War in June 1922.
Combining ground-breaking research in Computer Science and History, and in close collaboration with experts in Archival Studies and conservation, they have produced the Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland.
This research showcase will give each of the researchers an opportunity to describe their work, the challenges the team faced, and how their decisions have shaped the Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland
