The Rubrics, Trinity College Dublin
The Rubrics is the oldest building in Trinity College, built in about 1592 when Elizabeth the First granted the Charter for a University in Dublin. The site was a dilapidated Monastery outside the City Walls.
'Rubrics' is short for 'red bricks', by which name it is widely known. Last year the College decided to empty the cellars and apparently most of the 'old rubbish' found was taken straight to the National Museum for conservation! How many of us empty our 'rubbish' into a Museum???
