WikiTopia Archives


from 01/03/2018 until 30/06/2023

WikiTopia Archives is a program for digitization, transcription and study of archaeological sources run by the association ArkeoTopia, an alternative approach to archaeology. Launched in March 2018, with a first corpus of letters from the 19th century, the program is aimed at individuals interested in archaeology and at archaeologists, both students and researchers. Its objective is to encourage them to digitize and then publish their historical sources on Wikimedia via the Open Source tools. In this way, the various documents will be accessible to the greatest number of people all over the world and research on them will be encouraged.


Thanks to corpus of 200 letters wrote and received by Anatole de Barthélémy (1820-1904), archaeologist and high official, we will be able to contribute to a better knowledge on the history and role of archaeology as well as on the daily socio-economic life during the 19th in France.

The project will serve also to promote Wikimedia projects as scientific tools and a door to facilitate data diffusion, citizen science and research valorization.
