  • Convergence collaboration between the Institute of Digital Learning and SWCHIR – technologists and historians taking new learning journeys together
  • Developed in support of the Gwent branch of the Institute of Welsh Affair’s initiative this online webcast explores research into early medieval society and the literary tradition which inspired the Arthurian legend. The approach taken seeks to attract new digital and real world visitors to the landscape of Gwent which is central to the later medieval tales of Arthur. This has raised international interest from countries including Korea and the USA and the Caerleon Amphitheatre will host a King Arthur to Camelot reenactment event on 3rd and 4th July.

    • 2. Approach and focus at Newport
      Newport’s IDL and SWCHIR have been collaborating since 2008. This convergence collaboration has brought together digital creatives, historians and archaeologists to respond to the exciting opportunities arising from the Digital Heritage and Digital Tourism needs of our region.
    • 3. Approach and focus at Newport
      The IDL’s digital heritage r&d focus is on enabling creative interactive media experiences for heritage engagement, learning and participation - online, on mobile and in virtual worlds.
      For SWCHIR there is also a focus on the application of digital analysis to regional historical and archaeological investigations alongside Viewsheds and Social Network analysis.
      Working with a wide range of partners from the Heritage, Tourism and Voluntary sectors in Wales a number of key research questions have arisen:
    • 4. Approach and focus at Newport
      How can such creative approaches extend and enhance our experiences of heritage and enable new forms of interpretation and knowledge exchange?
      How can digital heritage approaches contribute to our nation’s cultural prosperity?
      What social and economic impact can our evolving online local histories have on a global scale?
      What forms of digital heritage approaches can help enable an increased digital inclusion and participation of excluded groups?
      How can digital heritage serve as a driver in the digital economy? – ………..Digital Tourism.
