Archaeological data is available in greater complexity and volume than ever before, which presents significant challenges and opportunities. In this position paper, we describe how a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) could be deployed not only to bring federated resources together with a unified searching capability, but also how those capabilities could themselves be used to create a ‘bottom up’ domain ontology for the resources’ subject area or areas. By linking with Virtual Research Environment (VRE) technology, this system could deliver access to a range of digital resources for excavators in the field, and at the same time provide a valuable body of semantic information about the archaeological research workflow, as expressed in the natural language archaeologists use to conduct their collection searches.
