Bronze Age Aegean


The Bronze Age (c. 3000-1000 BCE) is the period when cultures were either using, producing, or trading bronze. Several cultures flourished around the Aegean Sea during this period: the Minoan civilization on Crete, the Mycenaean civilization on mainland Greece, and the Cycladic culture on the Cyclades Islands. These three cultures developed independently and at different times whilst being in contact with each other, as well as with other regions including Egypt, Mesopotamia, Asia Minor, and the Levant.
