The Time Machine project

The Time Machine project is by far the most ambitious and far-reaching project ever undertaken with Big Data of the Past. The project is an international collaboration revolutionizing the way we experience European history and culture by creating a map of European history spanning thousands of years. This open-source, vibrant resource will benefit everyone, from academics to industry, arousing interest in the future generation of humanities scholars, transcending the boundaries of science and technology, and enabling the public to explore their own past.
