Common Ground is a project that unites the Swedish Institutes in Athens, Istanbul and Rome in the creation of a joint digital platform for Swedish archaeological research in the Mediterranean.
The database PRAGMATA contains material from more than a hundred years of Swedish archaeological activity in Greece.
PRAGMATA includes an inventory of archaeological materials, storage, contextual information, including photos and links to scanned and annotated excavation documentation, as well as information from older databases converted to a modern database format.
The project aims to make available the information and material from all Swedish excavations in Greece from 1894 and onwards. By organizing and complementing the Institute’s archive, and by creating an online database comprising digitized excavation documentation and information about the archaeological material, it will be accessible to researchers.
