The following is a list of common data tags that are used in ArchaeoWiki articles and their uses.

Tag Use Example Notes
Date Start Is Denote earliest date associated with the subject. [[Date Start Is::8000 BC]] You do not need to specify 'AD' for common-era dates added to the tag; however, ArchaeoWiki will not automatically append an AD prefix to such dates.
Date End Is Denote latest date associated with the subject. [[Date Start Is::500]] You do not need to specify 'AD' for common-era dates added to the tag; however, ArchaeoWiki will not automatically append an AD prefix to such dates.
Is Made From Associates a material from which the subject is made. [[Is Made From::Glass]]
Artifact Class Is Assigns the subject to a class of material culture. [[Artifact Class Is::Armature]]
Assemblage Has Indicates that the stated subject is found in association with the site. [[Assemblage Has::Celt]] This tag is useful for linking kinds of artifacts to specific places. By doing this, it is easy to generate a map showing all sites where a specific kinds of artifacts (in this case, celts) have been found.
HasThing Indicates that the stated artifact type made from the stated material type was found on the site. {{HasThing|Bead|Copper}} This is a special tag that has been rolled up into a template, so the formatting is a bit different. The benefit to using this tag is that it allows you to indicate that a bead made from copper was found, rather than saying a bead was found and copper was found.
