This section will decribe the earliest history of the Greek civilisation. Most of this is shrouded in the mists of time but can be roughly divided into five periods:
- The First Helladic Period
- The Second Helladic Period
- The Minoan Civilisation
- The Mycenean Civilisation or Third Helladic Period
- The Greek Dark Ages
Most of the information we have is pertaining to the Minoan and Mycenean civilisations.
