In this paper we outline the importance of event-centric documentation for structuring cultural metadata and historical context. Historical analysis can be seen as an analysis of events involving participation of people and things, meeting each other and thus creating history. Event modeling is so abstract that it can be used to describe cultural items and documentations of scientific observations. This work aims to show how event modeling provides more accurate information about life histories, relates and aggregates relevant information, and so helps to a more effective search and retrieval than currently achieved with Dublin Core and VRA.
