Abstract

Since 2018 York Archaeological Trust (YAT) has been working with specialists at the University of Huddersfield to assess the interpretative offer at Barley Hall, its reconstructed medieval townhouse attraction. A project team of three looked at how the narrative presented to visitors deals with one period in the building’s early history: its time as a residence for the canons of Nostell Priory. The project has applied and interpreted the concept of ‘narrative’ in two ways: in relation to the canons and their lives as individuals and members of a community; and in terms of the narrative qualities of the architecture of their residence, by which the structure is interpreted through its tangible and intangible features (including its materials, constructive system, spaces, decorations, colours, lights, shadows, etc.), giving rise to meanings, information, and evoked emotions (Di Mascio and Maver 2014)
