The Medieval Museum is located on the 13th-century site of St Mary’s cruciform church and graveyard. It contains an immense treasure trove of artefacts encompassing the work and lives of Ireland and its people across more than 800 years of history.
Books, Letters, Petitions, Leases… Kilkenny holds a unique set of civic records, tracing the city’s history right back to the 1200s. The ancient papers and treasures tell fascinating stories about daily life in a medieval city governed by wealthy merchants, including royal charters from the 1300s giving Kilkenny it’s ‘city status’.
The city charter in 1609 on 11th April is written on animal skin. The power of symbolism reflects in the image of the lion of England, the unicorn of Scotland and the fleur de lys of France. Not in colour as the 1608 charter with its brilliantly decorative illumination, but yet poignant in written script.
