Heritage from Home - Trinity Access to Research Archive

Heritage from home 15

So a lesser known research  site to while away an afternoon is TARA or the Trinity Access to Research Archive TARA is an open access repository with restricted access only in unavoidable instances, e.g. where publisher copyright restrictions prevail. One of the many collections is that of Prof. Edwin C. Rae was Professor of the History of Art at the University of Illinois, Champagne-Urbana. During World War II he was one of the Monuments Men or Fine Arts Chief (to give him his proper title) and responsible for returning thousands of art objects looted from conquered countries by the Germans. The subject of his Ph.D dissertation however, was the Architecture of Medieval Ireland. The collection of photographs, which date to c.1930-1970 are focussed principally on Irish Later Medieval (c.1250-1600AD) tomb sculpture, wayside crosses, architecture and architectural detailing. The collection includes material in state-, church- and privately-owned monuments including this photograph of Maud Plunkett’s tomb within the church on Malahide Castle Demesne.
