Early Bronze Age


The early Bronze Age occurred in Greece between 3000 BC and 2000 BC and saw significant changes in the development of the region. During this time the people inhabiting Greece became domesticating and cultivating oils, grapes, wheat and other cereals. The reason for the name of this period is due to the change in the archaeological record which reflects a shift from polished stone and flint tools to bronze forged.
