Interoperability of the ArSol (Archives du Sol) database based on the CIDOC-CRM ontology

Abstract : ARSOL (ARchives du SOL) was created in 1990 by the Laboratoire Archéologie et Territoires to exploit data from excavation sites. From the start, one of its priorities was to provide access to data. The CIDOC CRM (International Committee for Documentation, Conceptual Reference Model) was chosen as the international standard for structuring digital data for cultural heritage. This choice was imposed by the MASA (Mémoire des Archéologues et des Sites Archéologiques) consortium of the Huma-Num TGIR, whose aim is to provide unified access to digital corpora. The specific features of archaeological data present a difficulty: how can the integrity and specification of data can be respected, while generalizing the names of the fields of the data bases?
