York Culture Awards 2017 - Congratulations!

Congratulations to Dawn Hadley, Head of Department of Archaeology, who was part of a team that last week won the York City Culture Award for Excellence in Media Arts, for the Virtual Reality presentation of the Viking winter at Torksey.

The VR experience was included in the Yorkshire Museum’s exhibition Viking: Rediscover the Legend, which ran from May to November 2017, and was based on research led by Dawn and Prof. Julian Richards (York).

The VR project was a part of the Digital Narratives for Archaeology Research (DiNAR) Project, which is a a joint research project led by the Centre for Digital Heritage, Digital Creativity Labs (both University of York) and York Museums Trust.
