By the Rising Tide of the Humber 

University of Hull and BetaJester Ltd.

Experience a historical flood of Hull from the time of poet Andrew Marvell, in this 360 film.

2021 would mark Marvel's 400th birthday, Hull's celebrated poet who often wrote about flooding in his works.

Funded by the AHRC Creative Industries Cluster XR Stories this innovative project led by the University of Hull brings together literature and climate change with technology thanks to a partnership with virtual reality company BetaJester Ltd 

In this film, come face-to-face with a virtual flood and make decisions about how to survive it by talking to Andrew Marvell.

"It’s this relationship with the Humber we want to try and come back to – learning to live with the estuary as part of the nature of the city as opposed to it being something to fear."

This project is a partnership between researchers at the University of Hull led by Dr Stewart Mottram and BetaJester Ltd. It is funded by the AHRC Creative Industries Cluster, XR Stories and the University of York. 


The film does not have captions but a transcript is available to download here.
