Description

Switzerland's federal structure with its 26 cantons is a challenge when dealing with coin finds, as every canton has its own archaeological service and decides how to deal with their findings, including entering them – or not – in their own databases. For 30 years now, the Swiss Inventory of Coin Finds (SICF) has been collecting and creating coin find data in a standardised way, publishing them as a national inventory. Until now, only a small part of the material has been published online. With a new centralised database system, adapted to the possibilities offered by Linked Open Data, it will be possible to enter data and make the information available for research, still accounting for the needs and restrictions of the individual cantons.
