Thetford Priory and its Tudor Tombs for iOS

Developer's Description

Thetford Priory and its Tudor Tombs is an opportunity to explore and discover one of Englands hidden gems. The priory is now a ruin that was once the religious focus of the Howard Dukes of Norfolk, who battled to keep it open in the face of Henry VIIIs Dissolution. It was the site of some of the most beautiful tomb monuments ever constructed.This free interactive cultural and learning app will be of interest to anyone interested in Tudor history, cultural research, e-learning, art history, or the town of Thetford. It was created by a joint team from the University of Leicester, Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service, English Heritage, Oxford University and Yale Center for British Art. It stems from a 3-year project applying space science technology to art historical monuments.The app can be used on-site (using GPS functions to trigger content) or off-site and uses a combination of augmented reality, expert and actor videos and original documents; it also introduces for the first time, results of recent ground-breaking research.There are educational resources to support teachers using this app both onsite and in the classroom and the content can also be triggered offsite with QR codes if required. Please find further information at: http://www.museums.norfolk.gov.uk/Visit_Us/Ancient_House/index.htm.All content is provided free-of-charge with no in-app purchases.
