In our paper we will discuss the use of SKOS in simple database structures used in archaeological field-projects. We will show how we implemented a SKOS-thesaurus in an archaeological database and how we make the vocabularies usable by archaeologists which are not IT-specialists. We also will show how we use a SKOS-thesaurus to control the language of our database interface, so we can offer the participating projects a multilingual interface in an easy way. Afterwards we will demonstrate an easy to use tool we developed to gather and administrate SKOS-Thesauri. In a last step we will discuss our experiences we made while working with SKOS in archaeological field-projects.
