This paper addresses the feasibility of situated storytelling using Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) enabled augmented reality (AR) on a mobile phone. We specifically focus on storytelling in the heritage context as it provides a rich environment for stories to be told in. We conducted expert interviews with several museum and heritage sites to identify major themes for storytelling in the heritage context. These themes informed the development of an AR based storytelling application for a mobile phone. We evaluated the application in a user study and gained further insight into the factors that users appreciate in AR based storytelling. From these insights we derive several high level design guidelines that may inform future system development for situated storytelling, especially in the heritage context.
