Outcomes from the STAR Project are presented. The underlying rationale is the need to widen access to archaeological datasets, which will allow third parties to cross search different datasets and investigate the basis for interpretations in the underlying data. The semantic technologies employed are based on standard representations of domain vocabularies and the underlying core ontology, an archaeological extension of the CIDOC CRM. Methods for extracting semantic RDF representations from the datasets are described, together with Natural Language Processing techniques for information extraction from a selection of OASIS grey literature. STAR web services and semantic search implementations are presented. The need for controlled terminology is emphasised. Illustrative results from the semantic search Demonstrator are discussed.
