DUBLIN, Ireland - Crucial documents containing Ireland’s history that were destroyed in a fire in June 1922 are now being recreated.
Seven centuries of lost documents from Ireland's history are now being digitally recreated as part of a new project taken up by Trinity College.
Researchers at Trinity College have reportedly managed to virtually reconstruct the Public Record Office of Ireland at Dublin's Four Courts where the documents caught fire nearly hundred years ago.
Researchers are also said to have managed to virtually reconstruct the contents of the buildings in time for the centenary of the fire.
The project is titled Beyond 2022: Ireland’s Virtual Record Treasury project and is being headed by Peter Crooks.
Crooks said in a statement that people will be able to take a look at all aspects of Ireland's past.
He added, “This is the archive of the State in Ireland from the 14th Century, roughly, all the way up until 1922, so almost every aspect of Irish life was contained inside the building when it went on fire. That's Government, law, crime, births, marriages, parish registers - so it's really something that will reach out into every aspect of Irish life and across the islands."
