Telling the story of Rothe House (Conference)

Posted: Tuesday, 23 April 2013

Rothe House & Garden, Kilkenny is the venue for a seminar on the history of this early 17th century merchant's townhouse on Saturday 27 April.

The findings of recent archaeological digs around Rothe House and its garden will be reviewed as part of the ‘Telling the story of Rothe House' conference. The event is a joint venture between Kilkenny Archaeological Society (KAS) and The Rothe House Trust (RHT) and one of a number of events planned as part of the €3.1m Renaissance Project, which is now underway. This involves the imminent refurbishment of the first and second of the three houses and installation of a new exhibition space, with a circulation route through the two houses and ensuring its significance is preserved for future generations and its fascinating story is professionally presented to visitors.
