Welcome to the website for Bringing the English Past to (Virtual) Life, a course at  Carleton College (Winter 2015), taught by Austin Mason and Susannah Ottaway.

This course explores the history of England from the time of the Tudors through the Industrial Revolution, with a particular focus on the history of poverty and social welfare, using digital technologies like an Omeka repository, 3D modeling programs and the Unity game engine to develop innovative ways to teach and learn about the past.

This website features class assignments and weekly reports on our progress, and will also serve as a publishing venue for the initial results of our projects.
