Filming medieval Chester…

3 July 2012

Filming underway

Last week we had a meeting for the new ‘Discover Medieval Chester’ project at the Grosvenor Museum, Chester. It was great to share our progress so far – and particularly exciting to see some stills from the short films produced for the new website (in development) and the exhibition next summer (launching at the Grosvenor Museum, then transferring to Wrexham Museum). Hope you enjoy these ‘behind-the-scenes’ shots!

Updated digital map: photo layer

10 August 2011

The ‘Mapping Medieval Chester’ website is continuing to develop, and this post is to let you know about some changes to the interactive digital atlas (high bandwidth version). A while ago, we asked you to send in your photos of medieval locations and features in Chester via Flickr. Thank you so much for your response and the many wonderful photos of medieval sites in Chester today.

These photos have now been added to the digital atlas as an additional layer which you can select. They represent a key new feature, meaning that users can get a sense of how each of these locations appear today. This is especially useful for the international users of this website, who now have the chance to make a ‘virtual visit’ to these places. It’s also very fitting that, as part of a project which focuses on different perspectives on the city, we have this new collection of different views and vantage-points.

Thank you again for contributing to our project and enabling us to extend the resource in such a useful way.
