Data for Cultural Heritage in EOSC and ARIADNE, the European Research Infrastructure for Archaeology

The European Research Infrastructure for Archaeology ARIADNE was born in 2013 with the homonymous EU-funded project and further developing with the ARIADNE-plus project (2019-2022). Its purpose is the integration of European (and, in perspective, international) archaeological data through the use of semantic technologies and text mining based on NLP and machine learning. As of today, the project has created an online catalogue of archaeological datasets including about 2,000,000 items. It allows discovering digital archaeological resources available on-line. The system is searchable according to the time-space-content facets and to keywords. Data are organized according to the ARIADNE Data Model (ADM), a derivation CIDOC CRM, the international standard for cultural heritage documentation. ARIADNEPlus extends the ARIADNE work as regards geographic coverage, including additional EU countries and important international partners; the time span, extending from palaeoanthropology to the present; and subjects, which now include analytical data. Other aspects of the project concern the strengthening and the extension of the research community – it is estimated that until now about one third of European archaeologists has used ARIADNE – and the support to the creation of national repositories for research data deposit in countries that still don’t have them, as for example Italy. The final objective consists in the creation of a cloud for archaeology, compliant with the EOSC (with which there are important collaborations) which will make available virtual collaborative research environments with advanced services for the archeological data use and re-use.
