3. Mapping Medieval Kildare

Kildare Town Heritage Centre commissioned the creation of a map showing a snapshot in time of the walled town of Medieval Kildare in the 15th to 16th century. This video was created for Heritage week 15th to 23rd August 2020, to show how the project came about, to have a look at some of the key sites and to hear about the artists creative process.
