About DCH

The Danish Research Centre for Manorial Studies is a collaboration between Gammel Estrup – The Manor Museum, Aarhus University, Aarhus School of Architecture and the National Museum of Denmark. The research centre was established in 2004 with the specific purpose of promoting research, education, documentation and interpretation on the cultural history and heritage of estates and country houses.

It was the initiator of the ENCOUNTER (European Network for Country House and Estate Research) and now holds the chairmanship in the steering group and the secretariat for this network as well as the secretariat of the Nordic Network for manorial history.
