The area along the northern side of the Corinthian Gulf, between Phokis and Central Aitolia, is predominantly mountainous, with narrow routes leading to restricted lowlands. In the southern part of this area, population groups, which were later identified as Western Lokrians, may have been established as early as the Late Bronze Age, while in the north, in the mountainous hinterland, groups later identified as Kallieis formed part of the Aitolian community. The presentation explores the conditions under which identities were created, their connection with the environment, and the political developments as factors in the emergence of means for the peaceful resolution of disputes and the protection of borders.

No registration needed for participation in presence.
