Over 800,000 records for archaeological monuments and sites are now available on Europeana. The material that ranges from rune stones and tombs to dwellings and archaeological sites is provided by the Swedish National Heritage Board through CARARE, the project that brings archaeological content to Europeana.
The records on Europeana are in text format and contain information about each monument with a link to the original content. Clicking on this link will take you to the Swedish National Heritage Board website page with a map showing the location of the monument, text information, a scan of the original documentation and additional images of the monument, when available.
The Swedish National Heritage Board is one of 21 CARARE content providers that will contribute over 2 million items to Europeana. More datasets will be uploaded in the next few weeks.
So stay tuned!
