This chapter aims to review the state-of-field for using digital heritage metadata in the context of GIS mapping and LOD and to identify key chal- lenges from both theoretical and practical perspectives. The chapter illus- trates these challenges and how they can be dealt with a case study of a project using cutting-edge methodologies, the Digital Periegesis project. This allows us to answer research questions about how to organise and link textual data in relation to archaeological material culture, generally, and with regard to Pausanias’s Description of Greece and places mentioned by him, specifically. This endeavour makes it possible to approach an overarching purpose and address larger issues related to information organisation from epistemological and technical perspectives
