    The overall objective of ARIADNE is to help in making archaeological data more easily discoverable, accessible and re-useable. The project addresses the fragmentation of archaeological data in Europe and promotes a culture of open sharing and (re-)use of data across institutional, national and disciplinary boundaries of archaeological research. More specifically, ARIADNE implements an e-infrastructure for data interoperability, sharing and integrated access via a data portal. Linked Open Data can greatly contribute to these goals.
