Explore the House of Correction in Southwell, Nottinghamshire, as well as the surrounding area. The Southwell Community Archaeology Group was formed in 2008 primarily to bring to public attention concerns over the possible effects on important archaeology of development on the Roman Villa Site in Southwell. Their focus is on the Burgage area of this historic village. Working with the Digital Building Heritage Group at De Montfort University, this app was produced with a digital reconstruction of the House of Correction as a centrepiece. This 'model prison' was built in 1808 near the site of an earlier 17th century one. Houses of Correction were originally invented to punish petty criminals, beggars, vagrants and idlers (the undeserving poor) and instil in them habits of working and moral guidance to reform their characters.The Southwell Community Archaeology Group will use the app over time to present the results of their research in to the House of Correction and the surrounding area, using a combination of videos, images, scanned documents, and text. This will be collated in a location oriented way in the app, allowing you to browse this rich history in-situ. This app allows you to:- Explore a 3D model of the House of Correction- Navigate a rich collection of documents associated with the building- Slice through the building to explore its structure- Explore points of interest in the surrounding areaFuture updates will include improving the quality of the 3D model and the way different media are presented in the app.
