FISH Thesauri Version 27 Released

Published: July 02, 2024 Updated: July 02, 2024

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 ongoing technical issues we have been unable to produce updated .pdf versions for some of the thesauri for this release but they all remain current except for those thesauri listed below:

  • Archaeological Objects
  • Components
  • Historic Aircraft
  • Monument Type
  • Object Materials
  • Resource Description (Thred)

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause, but note that all .csv files are current; To view a list of terms added and changes made to version 27 of the thesauri click the link below.
