Our workshop on gaming and history last Thursday was well worth it. A nice bunch of people from different areas, all making for a very enthusiastic meeting. Someone was so kind to create a storify, so learn all about it here: https://storify.com/time_image/heritage-and-games?utm_campaign=&utm_source=direct-sfy.co&awesm=sfy.co_g1CIe&utm_medium=sfy.co-twitter&utm_content=storify-pingback
We hope we can follow-up on this in due course.
