Partnering with 26 other countries, the Center for Digital Antiquity is proud to be a part of the 5-year ARIADNEplus research grant (2019-2023). ARIADNEplus is the continuation of the successful ARIADNE project: Advanced Research Infrastructure for Archaeological Data Networking in Europe, 2013-2017. The original ARIADNE work focused on integrating 36 European Union archaeological repositories, and building a platform to support searching their integrated catalog of unpublished reports, images, maps, databases and other archaeological information.

The “plus” grant expands the integrated partners list to include the U.S. (the Center for Digital Antiquity), Argentina (National Scientific and Technical Research Council), Israel (Israel Antiquities Authority), and Japan (National Research Institute for Cultural Properties). The new portal will extend geographical and temporally, while providing various services to researchers to process and re-use the data.
