The first ArcVenture computer programme was published in 1991 by Sherston Software. The programme was about the Romans in Britain and focused on an archaeological dig site in Woodchester, Gloucestershire. Rather than dealing with information about rulers and battles, ArcVenture sought to introduce the ordinary people and culture of the time using archaeological artefacts to prompt discussion which lead to an adventure back in the time of the Romans in Britain.
The first programme was an instant success and so the author, Mark Vanstone went on to create three more ArcVentures: The Egyptians, The Vikings and The Anglo Saxons. The third (The Vikings) won the gold award for Best Educational Programme of the Year at the BETT show in 1994.33961152_1540329740230341_r.jpeg
In 2003 the series was re-worked to run on PC and Mac computers and continued being sold by Sherston Software until 2015. At the end of 2017, the original author of the programme, Mark Vanstone started work on a new chapter of the ArcVenture  story which will take the series into the online age and connect the history with up to date knowledge.
