As we are walking among the ruins of historic buildings, we are rarely thinking about the stories and people who may have lived there long ago. Interpreting history through the eyes of the present, we need quite some imagination to envisage past events. The invention At a Tea Party With the Lord of the Manor offers exactly this opportunity. It is an attempt to revive three venues/historical places in the Arboretum Volčji Potok, which will guide visitors through three different historical periods and in the lives of people whose personal fates were related to the creation of the park in Arboretum. Thus, each participant will learn about interesting facts concerning the garden heritage in Slovenia which he or she he will be more likely to remember due to our local Heroes’ personal narratives.
The invention is based on the interpretation of cultural heritage through the use of ICT, and on 2D illustrations of figures incorporated into the sites, including an interactive component.
