A magnificent collection of artefacts, reflecting 800 years of history in Ireland’s medieval capital, was recently discovered in the 13th- century St Mary’s Church and Graveyard (now the award-winning Medieval Mile Museum). On display for the first time, by kind permission of the National Museum of Ireland, these personal and poignant objects are symbols of everyday life, worship and death.

Join us to celebrate the opening of the exhibition, launched by Dr Rachel Moss, Department of History of Art and Architecture, Trinity College Dublin, with an introduction by archaeologist Cóilín Ó Drisceoil.
