Abstract The ethnic identity of the Philistines and their relationship to Greece, Cyprus, Anatolia and the Sea Peoples continues to be a very lively and interesting area of scholarly debate. This contribution reviews recent work on general categories of cultural interaction with regard to the eastern Mediterranean including colonisation, migration and cultural diffusion. The relationship between these categories of interaction and the formation of cultural identity such as creolisation, hybridity, assimilation and acculturation is also considered. An argument in favour of transculturalism, multivocality and long-term approaches to the formation of cultural identity is then proposed.
