The Augmented Palimpsest

The Augmented Palimpsest is a digital humanities tool that explores how the medium of Augmented Reality (AR) can be used in teaching medieval literature. Using Chaucer’s General Prologue, the tool delivers digital enhancements that emerge from the printed page via a smart device. They provide the reader with linguistic, historical, and cultural contexts, thus giving students greater access to medieval material culture and history. The digital content includes 3D models of medieval artifacts and architecture that are large and complex enough to be viewed from multiple angles.
