The Cambridge Companion to Archaic Greece provides a wide-ranging synthesis of history, society, and culture during the formative period of Ancient Greece, from the Age of Homer in the late eighth century to the Persian Wars of 490-480 BC. In ten clearly written and succinct chapters, leading scholars from around the English-speaking world treat all aspects of the civilization of Archaic Greece, from social, political, and military history to early achievements in poetry, philosophy, and the visual arts. Archaic Greece was an age of experimentation and intellectual ferment that laid the foundations for much of Western thought and culture. Individual Greek city-states rose to great power and wealth, and after a long period of isolation, many cities sent out colonies that spread Hellenism to all corners of the Mediterranean world. This Companion offers a vivid and fully documented account of this critical stage in the history of the West.

    I'm hitting a little trouble with a situation like: Who/whom is that present for? "Who is that present for" sounds much more natural, but the substitution would be "That present is for him." I know that in the original question, the who/whom is technically the object of the preposition "for," even though it's at the end of the sentence (my research says that's okay, I think), but "Whom is that present for" sounds really strange.

    I have a logo and photos I have taken which would provide the backdrop for the site. The changing array of antiques will provide the majority of the photos for the site.

      ???I was wondering if there is any way to integrate a crowdfunding campaign on a squarespace website? IgnitionDeck and others allow this on WordPress websites. What we are hoping to achieve is to split our home page between company info and the donation crowdfunding campaign. Any idea how we can achieve this? (we would prefer a DIY campaign and not used the big sites like Indiegogo)

    Tell us why, please. A little transparency would go a long way.
