The┬áSNAP:DRGN Graph is an authority list of ancient people, in the form of an aggregated triplestore containing information about persons (or groups, gods, monsters, and other “person-like” entities from ancient sources) from the core project partners, from external┬ádata providers and newly created data and relationships between people and records. The triplestore will be made available to researchers via a Sparql-endpoint and a RESTful API. For the time being, the triplestore can be browsed via URL or searched from a Sparql text page. See this post on how to query the SNAP triplestore.

  1. Looking forward to the database! Over the next 1-2 years, we have a goal to develop an entity tagger for our corpus, and it would be great to incorporate links or references to SNAP:DRGN records in that process.

  2. I’m an archaeologist, actually I’m studyind ancient cities in Roman provinces, particularly in Sicily.
