Coffee Break Reads

Drawing of a steaming coffee cup

It is hard to imagine the low walls outlining the peaceful ruins of Skriðuklaustur today as the bustling heart of a rich medieval monastic estate, so we spent three years experimenting with digital tools to help visitors encounter this vision of the past.

We invite you to step into the past, and to be inspired for the interpretation of your heritage sites in the future.

Everyone loves to play, and so what better way to get people involved and inspired by heritage than by gamifying the heritage experience?

We learnt a lot about gamification through experiment and trial-and-error, and we have gathered our experience together in this practical handbook.

If you are a museum or heritage organisation looking to get started in gamification, this handbook is for you. If you are a company providing technical digital services for a gamification project you may find this useful background reading.

Digitising Artefacts

Museums and heritage organisations often care for collections of intriguing and amazing objects, kept safe in their buildings. But imagine what more we could do if we could take these objects out of the museum back to the places where they were made and used, or share them with more people than could visit in person, or re-imagine their original surroundings: 3D digitisation of objects opens up all of these possibilities.
