The Cycladic Period (3200-1100 BC) coincides with the Early Bronze Age in Cyclades Islands. It is also called Cycladic Period. The name Cyclades used by ancient Greek writers to describe the dense cluster of small islands that form an invisible circle around Delos, the sacred island and place of worship of Apollo. These islands were the cradle of an important culture, the Cycladic Civilization, that flourished in the 3rd millennium BC.
