The Presentation

The presentation discusses the available Augmented Reality (AR) technologies for use at museums, archaeological sites and the wider cultural sector.  With the reference to recent case studies, it will focus on AR as a means of widening visitor demographics, encouraging on-site engagement, creating narratives, displaying ‘restorations’ and of providing alternative commercial avenues for administrations.
