In the last years several web services emerged that manage and make accessible place gazetteers for the archaeologies and historical sciences. By using semantic technologies these gazetteers act as linked data hubs connecting multiple datasets of varying thematic focus and of different structural properties. Just as important as the geo-spatial properties of research objects are their temporal classifications. In this talk we describe a time gazetteer web service that assumes a role similar to that of place gazetteers but for temporal concepts and cultural periods.
