    "Connecting Archaeological Data and Grey Literature via Semantic Cross Search"
    by Doug Tudhope, Keith May, Ceri Binding and Andreas Vlachidis

    This article provides an overview of the STAR project which centres around enabling highly granular cross search over a collection of archaeological datasets, including structured excavation databases and unstructured grey literature reports. It also gives a detailed explanation of the online demonstator application. The final discussion section provides the basis for the debate within the archaeological research and cultural data management communities, on the emerging possibilities for data integration and cross searching at various levels of detail.
