FISH Thesauri updated – Version 25

Candidate terms (terminology suggestions) are submitted to FISH all year round. Terms are processed and usually added to the FISH thesauri and authority files as and when they come in. Every year the thesauri are updated and uploaded to this website, here you can download the thesauri in CSV and PDF formats and at Heritage Data, a related website, you can access the terminologies in LOD format.

Due to technical issues we have been unable to produce updated .pdf versions of the thesauri for this release but they all remain current except for those that have been updated since February 2021; the six affected thesauri are:

Archaeological Objects, Components, Event, Monument Type, Object Materials and Resource Description (Thred).
