Issue 243: Types and Periods

Starting Date: 
Working Group: 

Posted by Martin 19/02/2014 

Dear All, 

May be it's time to propose a link between a period and a type. Very characteristic reasoning in archaeology, biology and geology ("Leitfossil"). 
Has anybody examples of data structures supporting such data? 



Current Proposal: 

In the 32nd joined meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9 and the 25th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting, The crm-sig decided to introduce a link from E55 Type.PXX objects of a type appear in: E4 Period.Also we decided to add this link in CRM CORE. This has been assigned to Dominic and Achille.

Oxford, February 2015

In 34th CRM-SIG  meeting, Achille proposed the following properties to be added to CRM CORE

(a) E55 Type.PXX objects of a type appear in: E4 Period. 

Note:  objects of a specific type are ascribed to a specific period:
Example: "  the Etruscan fibulae appear in the Etruscan Period"

(b) E55 Type.PXX object of a type define: E4 Period
Note: objects of a specific style define an artistic period:
Example: "the geometric class of vases define the Geometric Period of Greek art"

Meetings discussed:
