Caen Township 1813

Reconstruction of the Cean highland township

Cean is located about a mile up the strath from the town of Helmsdale in Sutherland, north east Scotland. It was created in a joint project between the Virtual Worlds group and the Timespan Museum and Arts Centre. It shows a snapshot of life in the highlands around 1800 at the time of the highland clearances.  Created to share the heritage of the Helmsdale community across the Internet and in the Timespan museum. It is installed in Timespan as an immersive, Kinect driven exhibit, open to all visitors.
