Welcome to a website supporting the
Village of Umuofia

An Interactive Learning Environment

The Village of Umuofia is a virtual reality space enhancing the study of Chinua Achebe's novel Things Fall Apart and the Igbo people at time of British colonial domination of Nigeria (late 19th early 20th century). Participants may use this environment in a variety of ways, including as an immersive museum of images of Igbo village life and traditional West African music, as well as an interactive space for live action role play activities based on the novel. The Village of Umuofia is part of Literary Worlds and entered from the Literary Worlds Portal.

Authentic Igbo images are used with permission from the Jones Photographic Archive of Southeastern Nigerian Art and Culture.
Traditional West African music by Yaya Diallo.

An experimental activity, comments and suggestions welcome.
