Riot1831@Nottingham Castle is a year long research project that began in October 2013 and is supported by the Digital R&D Fund for the Arts.

The aim is to investigate the ways augmented reality (AR) technology can add to the interpretive understanding of a heritage site and create opportunities to deepen engagement through multiple narrative perspectives. It uses AR as an active storytelling medium to develop an understanding of the new relationships that can be formed between the ‘real’ and ‘virtual’ objects.

The cross platform AR App is developed alongside the re-design of a new exhibition to bring a contemporary interpretation to the historical collection.
