Challenging the conventional perception of ancient Greece as the paradigm for unified models of culture, this study offers an alternative view of archaic and classical Greece. It is one in which the contact, conflict and collaboration of a variety of subcultures combine to comprise what we now understand as Greekness. The volume argues for the recognition and analysis of cultural contact within Greece, focusing on the micromechanics of cultural exchange, the permeability of cultural boundaries, and the significance of Delphi's geographically marginal, yet symbolically central, location as an internal contact zone.
