This presentation describes the AHRC/EPSRC funded partnership between Bournemouth University, Daden Ltd, Satsymph and The National Trust, to create and test a fully immersive 3D simulation of Avebury Henge in Wiltshire, circa 2,300 BCE. We discuss the design and construction of the simulation, and the results from public testing with more than 1,000 participants.
