In life the servants and staff of Kiplin Hall moved through the house silently undertaking their duties. We see traces of them in the historical record through things like accounts ledgers and diary entries. Then and today, they are shadows, without whom Kiplin Hall could not have existed and thrived. On this week’s episode of PreserveCast, we’re talking with Alice Rose, Programming Curator and Project Officer of Kiplin Hall & Gardens to discuss their latest exhibit which explores the world of servants and how embracing a more inclusive story is building interest in this well-preserved historic home.
Alice Rose is the Programming Curator and Project Officer for Kiplin Hall and Gardens in North Yorkshire, UK. Inspired by a childhood filled with family trips to historic sites, she studied archaeology at university. Through her studies, she realised that she was more interested in objects and their stories rather than digging in the ground. This led her to pursue a career in heritage and museums. Over the last 10 years, Alice has worked in a variety of organisations and roles, from ‘behind-the-scenes’ to front of house, sharing her enthusiasm and passion for the past.
