In this session we discuss the concept of Linked Open Data (LOD), the cornerstone of the Semantic Web, and its application to historical data, especially geographical information including place-names, locations, relationships and annotations. We look at a couple of case studies to illustrate the research and dissemination value of LOD for the study of ancient places. We then suggest an exercise involving the geo-annotation platform Recogito, and show some of the thing one can do with the data produced by such annotations.
