This contribution presents a digital tool, created with the intention of disseminating a part of the results generated by the Tahut Project: the historical graffiti carved on the walls of the temple of Debod. It also deals with the practical problems encountered during the development of the tool. This is an application made available for the visitors of the monument, providing them with information in an appealing manner, through ‘Augmented Reality’: complementary images and explanations are received in the visitors’ smart-phones or tablets as they read across the walls. In its first version, a printed document is necessary as medium to activate the application. The user can choose between Spanish or English to listen to brief notices about the most significant types of graffiti. The results of this experience are under evaluation in order to apply its lessons to future methods of disseminating the rest of the project’s materials: reliefs, inscriptions, history, and development of the temple
