5.1 What is an Event?

An Event is a situation, action or occurrences that took place at a certain location or time. An event may be carried out by an individual or a group e.g. “Denis Mahon purchased Guercino’s ‘Jacob Blessing the Sons of Joseph’ in 1934.” Events can be visualised as a timeline and locations tagged in Events can be visualised as a map.
