Virtual Histories Project

Virtual Histories, a project that brings to life four coastal landscapes, and allows you to explore past worlds. Each of the four reconstructions has been created in collaboration with communities and their local museums, and the projects span the north, south, east and west of Scotland.  The four models recreate different historical periods and locations, building upon projects undertaken at archaeological sites threatened by coastal erosion.

The models have been built using archaeological and historical evidence, and survey data collected in the field.  This was a collaborative project between ourselves and SCAPE – Scotland’s Coastal Heritage at Risk Project based at the University of St Andrews.
