OntoAndalus aims at constituting a shared conceptualisation of the domain within a future multilingual terminological resource targeted at experts and students of Islamic archaeology. The present version of OntoAndalus is aligned with
DOLCE+DnS Ultralite (DUL), an established top-level ontology for the Semantic Web. This article describes the modelling
assumptions underlying OntoAndalus, as well as the more relevant design patterns (i.e. artefact types, events and individuals).
The latter are exemplified through relevant case studies in the domain, namely those of lighting artefacts, the life cycle of pottery
and the several descriptions of Vaso de Tavira.
