Explore North Norfolk’s Deep History Coast from Weybourne to Cart Gap with the DHC Explorer Augmented Reality (AR) app. Use the GPS map to guide you along the Norfolk Coastal Path and unlock and collect clues to the past (and the present) as you go.
With augmented reality you can see how the landscape looked over 750,000 years ago, meet a family of hominins and collect mammoths, scimitar toothed cats, rhino and giant deer for your own virtual ‘tabletop tundra’ collection.
Our hominin family Ann, ‘T’, Cess and Orr, will appear at each of the large gateway monolith panels that you’ll find at Weybourne, Sheringham, West Runton, East Runton, Cromer, Overstrand, Trimingham, Mundesley, Walcott, Happisburg and Cart Gap and give you tips on what you can find along each stretch.
At West Runton and Mundesley you can collect virtual mammoth bones and build your own Steppe mammoth in the Mammoth Task game.
There’s a fossil and flint-finder section that will help you identify any interesting finds you may collect along the coast; You can take a geo-located photo of anything of interest that you find so you can show experts at the museum where you found it.
With the Changing Landscapes feature you can discover how the Norfolk coast has changed over millions of years and how it may look in the future.
