WikiGoths; WikiTopia Archives
The workshop originally planned on March 21 around the exhibition "Wisigoths, Rois de Toulouse" ("Wisigoths, Kings of Toulouse") at the Musée Saint-Raymond, the archaeological museum of Toulouse, was re-organised and took place online. The objects exhibited were created on Wikidata (with the import tool OpenRefine) and the corresponding images uploaded to Wikimedia Commons (with Pattypan).
Since it wasn't possible to access the museum to take photos, the online public who visited the exhibition before the lockdown was asked to share his own images on WikiCommons to complete those uploaded by the museum.
Furthermore, Wiktionary entries related to the Wisigoths have been created and improved.
Step by step the workshop has been documented on a Twitter thread to let people discover the Wiki projects.

The contributive session on line planned on March 21 pursues the work begun in March 2018: uploading of unpublished letters from 19th century scholars held by private owners. In addition to put these new datas available to everyone, the objective is to lead to an early biography of erudites like Anatole de Barthélemy and Ambroise Comarmond.
