5. Beyond the Museum

In this section we will analyse narrative structures that leverage specifically digital media affordances. To be precise, these will be active multilinear nodal narratives and emergent narratives. These examples will then be used as a springboard to promote discussion about how digital media, digital creativity and narrative structure facilitate particular forms of heritage engagement. Further examples can be found in Eve's article (this issue), in the exhibition in Moesgård in 2014 titled Dead Man's Nose, and the 2014 project on the York Municipal Cemetery, Voices/Recognition. All focus on alternative methods of conveying Geographic Information System analysis approaches to archaeology and, through such an approach, have come up with alternative ways of telling, and indeed structuring, archaeological narratives. Further discussion regarding the theoretical underpinnings is also undertaken by Beale and Reilly (this issue).
