Abstract

This paper describes the joint effort of computer scientists, archaeologists, and historians for designing a multi-agent system that exploits ontologies for the semantic description of the Mount Bego petroglyphs, thus moving a step forward their preservation. Most components of the MAS have already been developed and tested, and their integration is under way.
