Gothic Past

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Gothic Past is the Visual Archive of Gothic Architecture and Sculpture in Ireland.

When you arrive at the site, you can see excellent examples of what the means by watching the scrolling feature slideshow. I highly recommend clicking on any of those features that strike your fancy as an excellent starting point for browsing the site.

I also recommend checking out the How To section before you get started browsing seriously. It describes the difference between being a registered and unregistered user, how the exhibits work, and what you can do in each of them.

After that, you can choose to browse by Collection or Exhibit. You’ll find both options on the navigation menu at the top of the page. Collections allow you fairly unmediated access to the objects in the archive. Exhibits provide you more background and history surrounding whatever object or subject the exhibit is about. I liked browsing both ways, but I recommend you check out the Featured Exhibit and Collection on the main page to get a sense of how they are different from each other.

I do Geospatial metadata in one of my other jobs, and I really love that they’ve included a Map section. There you can browse items by location. To do so, you can pick an item from the left side of the screen and then zoom in on its location on the map or click on a pin and discover objects that way.

This is a really cool archive! I hope you’ll check it out today!
