DescriptionCrafting Digital Engagements with the Archaeological Interpretation of a Scottish Hillfort
The archaeological record is being presented to a non-specialist audience with an increasingly sophisticated toolkit of digital visualisation technologies. This paper investigates how this data-rich material is received and explores ways of designing this engagement to be less didactic by better reflecting the uncertainty and subjectivity of a post-processual archaeological process.
The potential for digital media to afford interactivity and accessibility that can more effectively represent the multi-layered, interpretive and ambiguous process of archaeological interpretation will be explored. A framework of research practice which directly engages with a practical application of theoretically-informed visualisation within archaeology will be used in order to understand and develop its role. A case study project derived from the Strathearn Environs and Royal Forteviot (SERF) hillfort programme will design and deliver a pilot digital resource focusing on these engaging archaeological processes and interpretations.
