Imagining the Past: Visitor specific applications for Al Zubarah Archaeological Site, Qatar

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterResearchpeer-review


— Since the inscription of Al Zubarah Archaeological Site on the UNESCO World Heritage List, the number of visitors has almost tripled. To ensure the protection and preservation of the fragile remains, visitors have only limited access to the site. Therefore it is important to enhance the visitor experience and to support the dissemination of results of the ongoing excavations. Besides traditional techniques, the Qatar Islamic Archaeology and Heritage Project in cooperation with DNP have developed two mobile applications with AR-elements and interactive components to engage especially young visitors to explore the site and to reflect upon the past.
