The origins and development of Greek historiography cannot be properly understood unless early historical writings are situated in the framework of late archaic and early classical Greek culture and society. Contextualization opens up new perspectives on the subject in The Historian's Craft in the Age of Herodotus. At the same time, such writings offer significant insights into how works of Herodotus reflect the attitude of fifth-century Greeks towards the transmission and manipulation of knowledge about the past. Essays by an international range of experts explore all aspects of the topic and, at the same time, make a thought-provoking contribution to the ongoing debates concerning literacy and oral culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition Everyone who works on early Greek poetics, history and culture will find much of interest in this rich volume ... provocative and exciting book ... The contributors and in particular Professors Luraghi and Murray have given us an enormous amount to think about. * Bryn Mawr Classical Review *
