In this session we will explore the use of virtual reality to reconstruct aspects of 16th century life. Working with documents including an inventory of the London house of Henry VIII and Cardinal Wolsey’s fixer Thomas Cromwell and Mozilla A-Frame we will consider what such documents can and can’t tell us about life in 16th century London, discuss the best way to turn text into VR objects and work hands on with A-Frame in order to demonstrate the simplicity of the platform. When working in 3D is this easy, what kinds of experiences should archives, galleries and museums be building?

This is a Learning Forum session.
