Through Dead Men's Eyes: Augmented Reality, Embodied GIS and Open-Air Heritage Sites

My project uses Augmented and Mixed Reality techniques to explore a new approach to embodied GIS. By re-examining archaeological problems that have previously been approached using traditional GIS analysis, I will show that a Mixed Reality approach can give us new insights into the problem, as well as an innovative way to undertake a phenomenological analysis of archaeological sites. I am particularly interested in exploring the coincidence and deployment of new technologies with theoretical positions in contemporary landscape archaeology.
