Working with the Historic Environment Scotland team, as Project Manager, we delivered this exhibition using only 1,000 words, supported by layers of dynamic sound, animated silhouettes and immersive projections.

This exhibition tells the story of Edinburgh Castle amid the brutal Wars of Independence, from royal residence, to war-torn ruin, finally evolving into a royal fortress. The exhibition was punctuated with artefacts, excavated from beneath the castle. This included a handful of tiny hammer scale, created by sparks from an anvil, the only evidence of sword-making found at any medieval castle in Britain.

A large, animated shield dominates one wall, comically depicting the constant flux of power and control of the castle. Looming above the displays is a sculptural trebuchet, representing the siege engines, first used in Scotland to attack the castle.
