In Archeofoss 2020, Sophie C. Schmidt and Florian Thiery presented a project on digitization and provision of Irish monoliths inscribed with Ogham script in Wikidata as Linked Open Data (LOD) (abstract in https://zenodo.org/record/4002961#.YHgzlOgzaUk).
The standard work on Ogham inscriptions is the volume of the Corpus Inscriptionum Insularum Celticarum, which describes two different types of words: formula words and nomenclature words. The combinations of these two types leads to inscriptions that feature kinship or tribal relations. This information occurs as a linked-graph-network.
The goal of the working group ‘Research Squirrel Engineers’ (http://squirrel.link) is to create a workflow for digitizing the analogue data and publish the stones as LOD, reproduction of analyses based on the analog CIIC catalog and enhance the database with Linked Open Data available online.
The aim is to discuss the pros and cons, as well as the challenges of the strategies. This includes the major challenge and possibility of citizen science vs. data sovereignty.
