Archaeology Data Service Linked Open Data

These Linked Data are made available as a direct result of the STELLAR project, a joint project between the University of South Wales, the ADS and English Heritage. Linked Data is a growing part of the Web where data is published on the Web and then linked to other published data in much the same way that web pages are interlinked using hypertext. The term Linked Data is used to describe a method of exposing, sharing, and connecting data via URIs on the Web. For more information go to The ADS cannot give advice or support on using RDF, SPARQL or SPARQL Endpoints. For a full description of the ADS datasets used in this initial evaluation version of an ADS Linked Data store please see the ADS STELLAR Research Page.

This page shows information obtained from the SPARQL endpoint at You can query the endpoint directly with a SPARQL client or by using our SPARQL query interface.
