We’ve recently presented the slides embedded below at an event at the German Archaeological Institute.

As we are still funded by JISC, you may not have realised that the second phase of Pelagios is actually part of a different programme (also in its second phase, as it happens): the Resource Discovery Programme. Its aims are to help academics and students discover content relevant to their research interests. In particular they […]
Pelagios is a growing collective of ancient world projects who are linking together their data so that scholars and members of the public are able to discover all different kinds of stuff about ancient places. Phase 1 has been the proof of concept. In this stage we have linked some core ancient world projects to […]

For DME, the situation is slightly different than for Pelagios’ other data partners: First, our existing data model is already based on OAC – which does probably make our transition somewhat easier. Second, […]
Note: The following post is heavily based on notes by Mathieu D’Aquin and Sebastian Heath. Prior to the workshop we have made a test SPARQL endpoint available for anyone who wants to test our approach and see what might be possible. The Demonstrator was built by Mathieu D’Aquin based on our weekly Skype meetings […]

On-line resources that reference ancient places are multiplying rapidly, bringing huge potential for the researcher provided that they can be found; but, even […]
