Objects of cultural heritage are mostly associated with renown and spectacular buildings whose tradition goes back several centuries - typical examples are castles, cathedrals and medieval city centers. These are objects whose historical meaning is clearly visible. However, there also exist places that have a long past but have lost their value due to historical changes of social structure, rapid urbanization processes or lack of preservation rules. Now they exist as spaces with unknown or unfamiliar meaning, with history and tradition hidden deeply beneath the surface of negligence. The paper seeks to examine the impact of the Augmented Reality (AR) technology on understanding, valuation, interpretation and identification of different places of neglected cultural heritage. AR consists in supplementing (augmenting) the reality with the computer-generated virtual elements. Special tools allow to mix in one sensory impression information from different sources, real and virtual. Numerous studies on embodied cognition show that ascription of meaning to objects is mediated not only through their culture recognized value but also throughout sensory and bodily experience. We will explore the possibility of changing people's emotional attitude, place-related bias, place memory and social perception of neglected historical places through the direct, bodily mediated, experience with the history of these places, as offered by AR. Experiments will be conducted in places that have been deprived of tangible and intangible connections with their history (e.g. (1) Muranów, a district located on the ruins of the Warsaw Ghetto, totally demolished during WWII, and rebuilt after the war in a modernistic style of social realism (2) the swimming pool in Poznań, former synagogue - place of cultural heritage that polarize public opinion and stimulate hot discussions as to their meaning and future status).
