Catriona has a PhD from Southampton together with a BA in Archaeology & MA in MSc in Archaeological Computing (Spatial Technologies). She is working on a thesis exploring lived experience in late medieval buildigns through digital technologies. 

This paper explores the use of digital technologies to explore lived experience in late medieval buildings through two case studies. The first, based at Bodium Castle uses digital visualisation techniques to envision the private apartments. The second, presents auralization as a method of exploring sound at Ightham Mote. The conclusions demonstrate that digital technologies that work across senses can provide a robust mechanism for exploring the concept of lived experience, and for exploring the lived expeirence of specific medieval buildings.
