Arquivo.pt launched a new version named Dionisius, on March 24th 2021.

1.8 billion images from the past Web are now searchable on Arquivo.pt.

Supporting large-scale image search over Web archives is a world-wide innovation.

To learn more about the development of this system, watch the video “Arquivo.pt image search 2020-2021“.

Try for example, how a search for images about “golf” returns images gathered from archived websites.
