Virtual world created from community archaeology project: watch!

This AmbITion Scotland case study in digital development sees Hannah Rudman telling the story of the virtual world digital content development that The Scape Trust have created at Timespan Arts & Heritage Centre & Museum, following a community archaeology project in Brora, a remote part of North East Scotland.

Using Kinect technology (Microsoft XBox) in the museum, and 3D virtual reality software and the evidence from the archaeological dig, the 16th Century salt pans of Brora remain with us for exploration at Timespan and online, although coastal erosion means they’re actually currently disappearing into the sea.

Watch and enjoy!
