Abstract
Over the years, Human Computer Interaction has gone
through remarkable change, starting from mere on/off
switches to modern computer interface which is derived
from typewriter. Recently, with the increased processing
capabilities of handheld devices, a lot of new interaction
methods are emerging, among them is Augmented
Reality (AR). In this work, we have presented a study in
which AR based interaction method is explored in
context of Digital Cultural Heritage. A mixed method
approach is used where at first; we have conducted a
systematic literature review of the area to gain from
other similar studies and later based on this we have
developed a prototype AR application in a case study of
Uppåkra temple exhibit with Active... (More)

developed a prototype AR application in a case study of
Uppåkra temple exhibit with Active interaction and
Passive interaction methods. We conclude from user
evaluation that Passive interaction is the most favorable
one and that the visitors are interested in enduring
presence of such exhibits in Lund University Historical
Museum. (Less)
