Integrating analytical and digital archaeological data: An ontological solution. The Salamis terracotta statues case-study

  1. 1. Integrating analytical and digital archaeological data: An ontological solution. The Salamis terracotta statues case-study S.Hermon, V.Vassallo, G.Sorrentino, U.Damnjanovic Multidisciplinary research produces multitude types of data. A basic requirement of scientific integrity is to present research outcomes along with raw data and its interpretative process. Data transparency is therefore a must in any scientific communication of research. This can be achieved by providing access to such information through a semantic system relying on a domain ontology through accepted metadata and paradata. The integration and organization of information according to a rich, cross-domain metadata and to a standard conceptual reference model (CIDOC-CRM) helps establishing a multi-disciplinary research infrastructure. CASE-STUDY A research on fragments of terracotta statues, discovered in the 19th century in Cyprus at Salamis-Toumba archaeological site and ranging in date from the second half of the 7th century BC to the early 6th century BC. Nowadays the fragments are dispersed across several museums in Europe.
