Archaeological reports contain a great deal of information that conveys facts and findings in different ways. Information Extraction as a Natural Language Processing can unlock and surface such information by analysing a textual input and producing a structured textual output suitable for further manipulation. Semantic Annotation links ontological definitions to natural language text by providing class information for textual instances. Described as a mediator platform between concepts and their worded representations, semantic annotation as metadata can automate the identification of concepts and their relationships in documents. It is proposed as a mechanism for connecting natural language and formal conceptual structures to enable new information access methods and to enhance existing ones. This aids information retrieval from heterogeneous data sources, empowering users to search across resources for entities and relations instead of words.
