Activity: Talk or presentation › Oral presentation
The presentation will discuss the role of different kinds of KOS in providing semantic cross search of archaeological datasets and grey literature, drawing on work for the AHRC funded STAR project. It will go on to discuss plans for the next stage of work in the ongoing STELLAR Project - Semantic Technologies Enhancing Links and Linked data for Archaeological Resources.
STELLAR is in collaboration with the Archaeology Data Service (ADS) at York University Archaeology Department and English Heritage. The ADS has a mandate to provide a digital repository for outputs from research funded by various bodies and holds a wide range of datasets from archaeological excavations. However datasets and applications are currently fragmented and isolated. Different terminology and data organisation hinders search and comparison across datasets. Currently, archaeological data is rarely reused and re-examined in light of evolving research questions and interpretations.
