Maritime Place Name Thesaurus

The Maritime Place Name Thesaurus from the Forum on Information Standards in Heritage (FISH) includes terms for maritime ports, countries and bodies of water from and to which ships may have sailed or been registered.

Historic England, as part of the Forum on Information Standards in Heritage (FISH), takes a leading role in setting standards for recording the built and buried heritage. Historic England and FISH are continually developing new thesauri to provide structure and guidelines for the standardisation of terms to be used when creating new records of the past.
