Invisible Monuments

News of the project 22/09/2016

Invisible Monuments through digital memory is the latest mobile application from the School of History and Archaeology of the University of Thessaloniki.

The action "Invisible monuments…Digital Memory" has, as a main objective, to motivate people through new technologies to meet the city’s less known past.

Seven archaeological sites, largely unknown, “hidden” and therefore functionally invisible, were selected to be in the spot light through the use of new technologies and social media. Posters with QR codes will provide the basic information on the archaeological sites in a precise and attractive way with texts and photos.

In addition, the possibility of leaving comments and interacting with other users allows, besides knowledge, the formation of an empirical connection, of personal memories to these archaeological sites.

The action is held in the framework of the European Cultural Heritage Days. It will start the last weekend of September (24-25 September) and will last a week until October 2nd, 2016. It is implemented by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in the framework of the NEARCH project.

The greatest pursuit of people behind this action is to encourage the public to gain personal experiences, personal stories and little personal memories in relation to the invisible past of the city and to express that through words and images to our pages on :
- Facebook @invisiblemonuments,
- Twitter @invis_monuments and
- Instagram @invisiblemonuments (#aoratamnimeia #invisiblemonuments).

We invite you to do so!
