Abstract: Public interpretation is an integral aspect of the archaeological process , and modern technology has made it easier than ever to communicate information with the general public. Technological advancements have been an aid to museums , but not all facilities may be able to afford the newest technological advancements. Quick response (QR) codes offer a cost-effective way for every museum to implement new technology into their displays. This paper identifies the visitor use of and response to QR codes aimed at explaining the archaeological process at the Brunswick Town/Fort Anderson Historic Site. It is determined that QR codes are an effective new technology which museums with smaller budgets can invest securely in.
