Cristina Mosconi (MA Archaeology for Screen Media 2013-14) has won a prestigious 'Special App Award for Young Researchers' at Cultural Heritage and New Technologies (CHNT) 22 in Vienna for her Rollright Stones tour guide app. Cristina first developed the app as her practice-based dissertation project, supervised by visiting lecturer (and fellow MA Archaeology for Screen Media graduate) Dr Teri Brewer. The flagship MA in Archaeology for Screen Media ran from 2001 to 2014 and was run jointly by the Departments of Archaeology and Drama (Professor Nick Saunders and Dr Angela Piccini) with industrial partnership with Channel 4's Time Team. During her time on the MA, Ms Mosconi also worked as part of the social media team on the Berkeley Dig field school. Ms Mosconi is currently completing a REACT Hub collaborative PhD with Exeter University and Calvium. Her 'Geo-locating the spatial and architectural history of pre-modern cities' project examines how digital approaches and locative media have unlocked the potential for site-specific narrative and history delivered in the urban realm in direct dialogue with extant sites and objects.
