The Helladic period is a modern archaeological term for a set of periods. These periods are of the culture of mainland Greece during the Copper and Bronze Ages. It is used in both archeology and art history. The term was used to complement two contemporary terms: Cycladic, for the Aegean Cycladic civilization; and Minoan, for the Cretan civilization.
