Presentation at AltC2013: The Representing Re-Formation project is an interdisciplinary Science and Heritage project exploring the multifaceted lives of the prominent noble family, the Howard Dukes of Norfolk, during the era of Reformation. This three-year project has been studying the Howard Tombs and possibly associated fragments using 3D laser scanning techniques and expertise from multiple research disciplines. Partners include the University of Leicester, University of Oxford, The Yale Center for British Art, Yale University and English Heritage. This project ends in September 2013 and we are hopeful that the findings of this big research can be successfully shared with the public. Strategies include a project website, public exhibition and free educational iPad application and educational resources which contextualise the research findings in situ. These activities are seen as integral to increasing the project’s impact by attempting to make academic research more accessible. The presentation will cover the app design, development and evaluation. The aim is to communicate the projects findings and the work academic researchers cover. The app encourages the investigation and discovery of artifacts found at the Thetford Priory site using AR. The focus is upon the evaluation framework used and data collected, concluding with discussions around using such media for communicating research findings to the public as an educational resource.
