Working through Argos, Greece, and the wider area, chapter seven shifts from a past held to exist apart from the present to a situation where pasts are understood as spatially coextensive. In putting to one side a modernist historicism in which the past is situated as a series of successions and replacements in favor of pasts as a gathered, multitemporal ensemble, this chapter offers a different image of time as percolation.

Keywords:   modernist historicism, chronology, timeline, time, percolation
