Mobile agency TapMob has been appointed by Cirencester’s Corinium Museum to provide an app for visitors to give them the lowdown on the historic Roman town.
The app will offer tourists and locals alike a map of key archaeological sites and augment artefacts in the museum and learning resources for those keen to understand more about Roman Britain.
TapMob’s managing director Laith Clark said ‘we are pleased to have been chosen to work on this project as it gives two Cirencester businesses the opportunity to work together which can only be of benefit. The app will enhance the Museum’s visitor experience as well as help schools around the UK learn more about Roman Cirencester’
The Museum’s curator Amanda Hart commented ‘we are delighted to have been given the funding to make this project a reality. The app will be a excellent tool to link the town’s Roman archaeology with the objects that are on display at the Corinium Museum, by adopting the most up to date mobile technology’.
The app will be made available in 2013.
