Moor Stories

Gabriella Giannachi was Principal Investigator in Moor Stories, developed in collaboration with Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery and 1010 Media with funding from REACT HEIF. Moor Stories is a web app that aims to facilitate creative encounters between objects in RAMM's collections pertaining to Dartmoor (primarily flints, pottery, drawings, paintings, wood and stone carvings) to prompt memories about them among the communities that live where the objects were originally found. Using data and images from RAMM’s collections, objects are placed back in their 'original' location on Dartmoor. Moor Stories aims to facilitate creativity and encourage the sharing of historical knowledge between museum curators, local history societies and museums on the moor.
