Issue 299: The range of AP15 is or contains remains
The ArSol mappings to CIDOC CRM extensions raised the following issue regarding the range of AP15 is or contains remains of (is or has remains contained in) from CRMarchaeo
We should discuss whether a stratigraphic interface could contain finds. In the case that it is pointed out that it cannot then the domain should be changed from A8 Stratigraphic Unit to A2 Stratigraphic Volume Unit.

In the 36th joined meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9 and the 29th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting, the crm-sig discussed whether a stratigraphic interface could contain finds. The sig agreed that the stratigraphic interface cannot contain finds, therefore the following changes to this property are proposed for HW. The proposed changes are:
(a) It would be better to use range S10 for the AP15 is or contains remains of (is or has remains contained in) e.g. ashes, traces of ...copper`
(b) and to split out a new property which can be called ‘contains’ with domain A2 Stratigraphic Volume Unit and E18 Physical Thing (APXX contains)
(c) to use the old definition of AP15 for the new property scope note
This homework is assigned to Lida
In the 37th joined meeting of the CIDOC CRM SIG and ISO/TC46/SC4/WG9 and the 30th FRBR - CIDOC CRM Harmonization meeting, the crm-sig reviewed the proposals made by Lida and Achille and changed the scope notes of AP15 and AP21. Also considering that there are non stratigraphic style archaeological methods, the sig asked Gerald Hiebel to generalize these scope notes.

Dear Chryssoula and All,
Thanks for the reminder, I tried to make a proposal.
In the process two questions came up that might be worth discussing.
1. If an A2 Stratigraphic Volume Unit is a subclass of S22 Segment of Matter with a defining E92 that is the E92 of the A4 Stratigraphic Genesis Event.
2. If we should introduce in CRMarchaeo classes for the surfaces(interfaces) and volumes that were created from an A1 Excavation process unit, because for non stratigraphic excavation methodologies the S20 Physical Things created in the process are very general S20 and S22 and not related with CRMarchaeo properties. But in the documentation of non stratigraphic excavations the surfaces (interfaces) are the things that are documented in detail and therefore have a very central position.
A construct analog to the Stratigrafic unit may be:
AP10 Physical Excavation Unit
subclass of S20
create through one or several A1 Excavation Process Units
AP11 Physical Excavation Volume Unit
subclass of AP10, S22
AP12 Physical Excavation Surface Unit
subclass of AP10
