Advanced Research Infrastructure for Archaeological Data Networking in Europe plus

Giving the past a future: the integration of archaeological data infrastructures in Europe is vital to ensure researchers are able to search through vast data sets on a specific topic. Building on the success of the previous ARIADNE project, which successfully integrated archaeological data infrastructures in Europe (indexing some 2 million data sets on its portal), this EU-funded ARIADNEplus project will update the data and extend geographic and temporal coverage. Specifically, it will further develop relationships with key stakeholders to cover all of Europe. It will also develop a new data infrastructure embedded in a cloud that will offer the availability of virtual research environments where data-based archaeological research may be carried out. It will also simplify the search process with pre-compiled menus.
