English Archaeology Named Entity Recognizer

The entity recognizer identifies terms and phrases in English for analysing archaeological text. The pipeline delivers named entities of archaeological context, physical object, material, time appellation and structure. The named entities are linked to concept labels of the National Cultural Heritage Thesauri (UK). The pipeline is part of the Ariadne Infrastructure that integrates archaeological research data across Europe.
