  • Early Bronze Age - Refers to the earliest phase of Bronze Age cultures, which developed differently in different regions, either from Chalcolithic or Neolithic technologies. It differs from the Middle and Late Bronze Age cultures primarily in metal assemblages and burial rites. It is characterized in part by the earliest experimentation with copper alloys to produce bronze, as well as the improvement of stone tools, and various other local cultural developments. Some scholars classify the Chalcolithic as the earliest phase of the Bronze Age.
  • Late Cycladic - Refers to the style of artistic production in the Cycladic archipelago between roughly 1600 and 1050 BCE. Artworks include pottery decorated with abstract and figural motifs, wall paintings depicting festivals and natural scenes, and a group of large terracotta figures, all which reveal the influence of Minoan and later Mycenean cultures.
  • Middle Cycladic - Refers to the style of artistic production in the Cycladic archipelago between roughly 2000 and 1600 BCE represented mainly by pottery in the Dark Burnished, Cycladic White, and Black-and-red styles.
