The project evolved from a set of first-hand eyewitness accounts and museum objects in the Nottingham Castle collection that were a legacy of the riots in response to the rejection of the Reform Bill of 1831, which led to the burning of Nottingham Castle. These artefacts presented a dilemma about the notion of ‘real history’ and from whose perspective it should be told. Augmented reality combined with storytelling presented an opportunity for the museum to interpret these histories and help shift the balance between explicit information and implicit knowledge.
