Abstract: In most cases, digital heritage projects are descriptive; their objectives are diverse while their works, at large, presume that technology delivers greater interpretation. There is no significant interpretation method or principle for interpreting digital heritage like other disciplines such as archaeology. This research thereby argues that, for better interpretation and experience of digital heritage, a comprehensive interpretive method is required. Instead of predefined instructional sequences or descriptive interpretation, it hypothesizes interpretation as an evolving `process¿ that is participatory and contributory. The main scope of this research therefore, remains twofold. First by developing a methodological framework, which is likely to benefit interpretation of digital heritage by involving participants in a process that enables them to engage in a dialogic interaction and collectively generate contextual perception of the past. Second, to conduct an explorative study to evaluate interpretation perceived by end-users, and to measure the effectiveness of the aforementioned model.
