    This paper introduces a new approach to incorporating the temporal dimension in database systems. Instead of introducing time as an attribute in a conventional state database the paper proposes that state databases are derivatives from event databases which are regarded as fundamental. A data modelling approach is introduced together with a realization in terms of a Temporal Functional Database Language (TFDL).
