One entity is a specialization of another entity if it shares the same fixed attributes, with the possible addition of further fixed attributes. PROV also allows us to more generally draw a connection between two descriptions of the same thing… describing the entities as alternates of each other. Activities may follow pre-defined procedures, such as recipes, tutorials, instructions, or workflows. PROV refers to these, in general, as plans, and allows the description that a plan was followed, by agents, in executing an activity.

  19. 19. 1.  Process descriptions should be part of the research agenda in Humanities in the Semantic Web 2.  The provenance of historical artefacts and their digitizations can be represented in PROV 3.  There may be multiple alternative provenances, and overlapping provenances, so we need tooling to support this. Is this a job for linked data? 4.  We need to describe the provenance of provenance 5.  The process of describing and encoding the provenance has been a useful research method, facilitating interdisciplinary discussion 6.  We offer the Bodleian First Folio as a case study 7.  What about social editions?
