About

Europeana Archaeology

1 February 2019 to 31 July 2020

The project aims to increase the amount of high-quality digital content for Europe’s rich heritage of archaeological monuments, historic buildings, cultural landscapes and artefacts that is accessible online through Europeana and available for reuse. During the project partners will enrich the quality of existing collections, add new collections and carry out targeted digitisation. Work to map vocabularies and to increase the use of multilingual Linked Open Data will help to raise the quality of the metadata and will also result in a set of services for archaeology being made available to Europeana aggregators and content providers. The content provided by the project will be directly available to users through the Archaeology thematic collection.
