At the Centre for Digital Heritage we believe that all research should have a profound social impact and that in order to achieve this it is necessary to think creatively about how we communicate with different audiences.
Whether we are developing new ways of thinking about academic publication or writing blogs that show the personal stories behind the research, we understand how important it is to keep people informed and help them visualise and interact with their cultural heritage.
We worked with York Theatre Royal to create a web resource to engage audiences with the redevelopment of the theatre's auditorium.
We developed Internet Archaeology, a free, digital, open-access journal, containing peer-reviewed archaeological research.
Colleagues at the Centre for the Study of Christianity and Culture aimed to improve visitor understanding of the layout and development of Glastonbury Abbey by using digital reconstructions.
