The Ivory Bangle Lady
by Christopher Knüsel, Stephany Leach and Imagemakers
In 1901, the Skeletal remains of a young woman interred with an unusual range of burial gifts, were excavated from a stone coffin in York. Cutting- edge research, suggests she was a high status migrant to Roman York, of North African descent.
This project tackles the way human remains are displayed in museums and aims to create a technologically augmented installation that will reveal the story behind the mysterious Ivory Bangle Lady of York. The project will be an example of how pervasive media can be used to break the mould and enhance peoples’ museum experience.
