Pelagios is Moving House

You are now being redirected to the new home of Pelagios on the web
Despite a period of silence on our blog the Pelagios team have, as ever, been hard at work. This has included participation in workshops and seminars across Europe to promote and inform about our linked data approach, from UmeƄ to Athens. But the big news is that we have been awarded further funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation!

For this new stage of the project, Pelagios is becoming a Commons. We will be nurturing Special Interest Groups (SIGs) dedicated either to investigating particular historical periods—from antiquity to the modern era—or creating new tools, services and resources for discovering and representing historical geography. These SIGs will have access to funds in order to hold international workshops and create resources of mutual benefit, such as maps, datasets or software. They will also be responsible for the overall governance of Pelagios Commons. 

In order to meet the aims of this new and important phase, we will be moving to a new platform. Yes, we are bidding a fond farewell to Blogger, after five years of hosting our conversation. Instead, we invite you all to our new home,, where you will find more details about Pelagios Commons and our tools, resources and documentation all on one site.

We hope to see you there very shortly!
