This event is aimed at anyone interested in the Ulster Plantation of the early seventeenth century, a period of critical importance in the shaping of modern Ulster and Ireland. The event will be held on consecutive days, in Belfast and then in Derry~Londonderry.
The presentations in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI) will focus on the Plantation in Belfast and east Ulster while the sessions in the Tower Museum will concentrate on Londonderry and the northwest. The event will be chaired by Dr Sam Burnside and a host of renowned experts on the Plantation will speak at this one-off event, held in tribute to the life and work of R.J. (Bob) Hunter.
Please note that full capacity has been reached for the talks in PRONI. However we are compiling a reserve list in the event of cancellations. Places are still available for the talks in the Tower Museum.
