Aims

The infrastructure will result in:

  1. A new generation of data-driven archaeological research
  2. Transparent data aggregation services for integrating data derived from archaeological excavations and palaeolandscape analyses
  3. Dynamic online access to detailed and reliable object-based information for finds, artefacts and samples
  4. Massively increased interdisciplinary and international interoperability of past, present and future archaeological data
  5. A framework for the integration of existing data with future capture and analysis methods

…and in more detail, it will:

  • formulate and implement national strategies for integrating and disseminating the vast array of data and information produced by and used in archaeology
  • prepare for new types of data created in the near future. …improving the quality of existing large and ‘messy’ quantitative and qualitative archaeological datasets and metadata collections,
  • investigating and implementing methods for aggregation in line with predicted demands of a new generation of integrative, interdisciplinary data-intensive research on socio-environmental dynamics over the long-term.
  • The infrastructure will transparently harmonize existing digitised and digitally born data, connect them to established standards and vocabularies
  • FAIR-principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable).
  • availability and FAIRness of existing analysis data and explore the integration of this with near future data capture methods, assuring the long-term sustainability and interoperability of archaeological data.
  • enable new approaches for using digital methods, redefine archaeological research agendas, and ensure Swedish archaeology is part of the data science revolution.
