The beautiful historically inspired map – which is printed on a decorative satin so it can be worn as a scarf – uses the latest technology to highlight the role Hampshire played in the build up and aftermath of the Battle of Agincourt. The map is in the legendary style of 16th Century cartographer, John Speed.
But it holds many secrets! Using augmented reality, the map is embedded with tales from the past and information of the significant role the region played in King Henry V’s reign. It’s easy to access animations complete with tales from the past and key information of the role the region played in the lead up to the battle.
