Timespan’s online Real Rights exhibition maps the history of the parish of Kildonan in East Sutherland, Scotland, looking at the intersection of colonialism and climate change.
Alongside more conventional objects, images and documents, the exhibition presents three digital reconstructions of archaeological sites from the parish – an Iron Age roundhouse settlement (500BC-500AD); a Highland Clearances longhouse settlement in 1813 and Helmsdale fishing village c.1890.
In addition to the rich historical content, the exhibition presents a way in which digital models of the past can be curated and interpreted alongside other types of historical documents.
