All of the reconstruction exhibits are tactile. The models can be observed and also touched, allowing blind and deafblind people to interact with history on an equal footing with other visitors to the exhibition. This is also of particular interest to children, breaking the prevailing stereotype that museum pieces are untouchable.
Many of the models are made from special materials to reproduce not only the shape, but also the sensory features of the original. By touching them, visitors will feel what they would have felt if they had touched a real 11th- and 12th-century artefact.
