Hi guys, long time no see - been going through a divorce, relocation and a new and exciting project that has stemmed from finally finishing my degree with a first. But we need your help folks.
I presume it's ok to post this in classified.

We are currently in the process of recreating for educational use a fully immersive and educational tool that will be available for free.

This world is a representation of the Bronze Age in East Anglia and focuses on an area known to be of religious significance during this time. The landscape is a wetland environment and has been generated entirely digitally. The archaeology has been reconstructed from actual evidence found on sites in the area. Round houses and wooden platforms, track ways, fences and the great causeway structures of Flag Fen are all present in the landscape.

This project is a visual representation of what we know about a past landscape, it combines archaeological data and scientific data with cutting edge digital recording and visualisation techniques to produce a virtual world.

Having completed much of the 3D modelling the world exists on a computer hard drive. Currently there is no way for anyone to visit this place and explore the past. We have a very limited QTVR as a test and fly through, but would like to offer a more interactive narrative to the landscape.

Our idea is to create an online experience using the archaeological material, allowing free access to the world so that others can experience and learn about our current understanding of this past landscape.

We would like to create a story through which the visitor can experience the landscape, the story focuses around a lone traveller who comes upon this landscape for the first time.

The story will be told by developing an interactive panoramic VR experience with some 360degree video panoramas, and directional sound. The interactive elements such as completing various gaming elements will be mixed in with animation and video to create a unique way of exploring the past.

Real archaeological sites have been 3D recorded and form the basis of an interpretation, a link between these 3D models and the landscape will be made. This world is based on actual data.

As we have raised more than our initial target of £800 we can expand the landscape further North. Our lone traveller and online visitors will be able explore an extended landscape. We already have concept images that illustrate our travellers first encounter with a standing stone.

We are grateful for any support to help us open up this past world to the public. I know all your lovely people can be pretty generous, and even if you can't afford to donate, then if you could share the link with friends and colleagues then this would help spread the word
