    Eleanor

    An augmented reality walk into the past

    ‘Eleanor’ is a multimedia project exploring the controversial life of Lady Eleanor Talbot, who lived in Norwich and is thought to be buried in Whitefriars. A guided immersive walk resurrects Eleanor as well as taking us on a journey into the history of the city. Gowar gives the audience a chance to participate in the construction of a powerful story of the life of a young woman who speaks to us across time about gender, power and history.
