Intro to Prehistoric Europe

March 29, 2006 at 6:14 pm (Europe, Prehistory)

Human prehistory can be divided into three major ‘ages’ – Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age – which can be further subdivided. The dates of these ages can differ according to location. Since we are beginning our discussion of clothing in Europe, we will use the following dates to delineate these ages:

Stone Age – 2 million years ago until 3000 BC
Bronze Age – 3000 BC until 1500 BC
Iron Age – 1500 BC until 1000 BC (later in Northern Europe)
