Visit the new and improved version of www.danskeherregaarde.dk and find information about the more than 700 Danish manor houses! On November 30th 2018 the Danish Research Centre for Manorial Studies at Gammel Estrup launched the new version of the popular website.
The site has existed since 2014 and is everyday visited by many Danish users with an interest in the history of the manors. The website navigation has been improved with the newly launched version and a thematic structure which brings the user deeper into the manorial world has been added. Last but not least, the site has had a much-needed facelift with a more updated layout.
The site offers different maps showing the Danish manors of today an earlier, presentations of all Danish manors in Danish and of selected manors in English.
The new version of the website is the first step in plan of the Danish Research Centre for Manorial Studies to digitise and map manor houses in Denmark and Europe. The research centre is looking for European partners for mapping projects in the future. For expressions of interest or new ideas please contact the research centre at: firstname.lastname@example.org
