Set in stone – new displays at Castle Acre Priory
We’ve been busy installing our 3D Exhibits at Castle Acre Priory – just in time for summer! The English Heritage site now displays two modular units, giving a taster of medieval stonework for their younger visitors.
Most of our projects are bespoke, but some are more bespoke than others! Working with specialists in object mounting and installation, we designed freestanding units that would incorporate historic stonework into the very fabric of the displays themselves. Using the real deal, we could encourage children to spot more stonework features as they explore the rest of the site.
Medieval architecture can be a tricky subject for anyone, but fun illustrations add a light touch to the experience, explaining techniques visually and entertainingly. Young visitors can also interact with the displays themselves, creating a medieval arch from magnetic jigsaw pieces.
The May Bank Holiday weekend sees the launch of these new displays as permanent features in the interpretation of Castle Acre Priory. They will be complemented by a family trail, designed by the wonderful Blackbird Publishing, a fantastic team to work alongside.
