A set of 5 games placed at Roman archaeological sites in London that engage the visitors in an interactive way with the content on display. Part of the Festival of Archaeology 2013, the project is designed to capture the interest of teenagers aged between 13 and 17, whilst being inclusive for a variety of visitors.
The interventions reveal the hidden historic narratives from the sites using a mystery game structure. London Past Forward uses narrative theory to create engaging communication and to bring the history of the sites to life. Using narrative modes such as character, tone of voice, and perspective it aims to push the boundaries and test narrative theory within an archaeological context.
