Event details

Come along and listen to the graffiti scratched into the walls of York Gaol by prisoners 200 years ago. Use your ears and a 'magic wand' to find hidden pictures and learn the stories of some of the inmates held in the prisons at York Castle during the 1700s and 1800s. Whispering Graffiti is part of ‘Within the Walls of York Gaol’, a collaborative research project between York Museums Trust, the University of York and the University of Glasgow to develop new forms of interactive media for museums.

Meet the Researchers: Anthony Masinton, Dr Gareth Beale, Dr Guy Schofield, Helen Langwick, Dr Jonathan Hook, Dr Nicole Beale, Theodore Wilkins
