#ExploreYourArchive is set to take place from 20th to 28th November 2021. Explore Your Archive is annual campaign held across Ireland and UK to celebrate archives and the collections they hold.  

As part of #Explore Your Archive campaign, Dr. Patrick Walsh and Dr. Andrew Mackillop will give a free online lecture on Thursday 25th November at 11am  titled “Reading the Deeds and Sasines: A Digital Humanities approach to the Irish and Scottish Land Records”.  

Drawing on an exploratory research project funded by the Irish Research Council and the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council and conducted in collaboration with the Property Registration Authority of Ireland and the National Records of Scotland, this talk explores the challenges of using digital humanities approaches to the vast and extraordinarily rich archives of the Irish Registry of Deeds and the Scottish Register of Sasines.
