In reviewing evidence about real world processes, being aware of the context in which activities within such processes are performed enables us to make more informed judgements. It is necessary to distinguish between the environment in which a process occurs, and the sequence of activities which form part of the description of that process. Each of these types of information is complementary to understanding the other and therefore making associations between them is also important. Our work has been exploring the use of <em>context</em> whilst documenting a process and working toward a solution which incorporates the two. We present an approach to automatically relating properties of workflow actors to the documentation of the process within which these actors are involved.
