Herregårdshistorie (Journal of Manor & Estate History) is the journal and annual review of Gammel Estrup The Danish Manor & Estate Museum and the Danish Research Centre for Manorial Studies.

Herregårdshistorie (Journal of Manor & Estate History) is published once a year. In addition, in 2018 the museum published a special edition – the book Fyrstelige måltider (Princely Meals).

Since 2018, the journal has featured a peer-reviewed theme.

From 2020, the articles in Herregårdshistorie (Journal of Manor & Estate History) will also be published digitally on the Royal Danish Library’s www.tidsskrift.dk.

Herregårdshistorie (Journal of Manor & Estate History) often contains articles in English.

The theme will often reflect the exhibitions at the museum or the projects in progress at the research centre.
