Contributors (people and/or organizations)We use the Thesaurus of Monument Types when we can, but data is supplied to us by third parties, but we can revert to the highest level terms when the terms do not match. The Thesaurus is not in our control, but is largely the work of English Heritage. Other agencies contribute to it through the Forum for Information Standards in Heritage (FISH).
