Digitization And Archiving Of Archaeological Sites: The Karabournaki Case” is a project regarding the digital documentation of an archaeological site using as a case study the site of Karabournaki located in the area of Thessaloniki (Greece). Focus of the project is to design, develop, and implement a multimedia cultural database system capturing the full amount of the available information regarding the site, including extended search and visualization capabilities that can deliver its multilingual content over the Internet. The meta-data that are produced with the completion of the project contribute significantly to the study and publication of any archaeological site as well as its preservation, succeeding the final goal of making it universally accessible.
