The Minoans were a pre-Hellenic Bronze Age civilization in Crete in the Aegean Sea, flourishing from approximately 2600 to 1450 BC when their culture was superseded by the Mycenaean culture, which drew upon the Minoans.
Based on depictions in Minoan art, Minoan culture is often characterized as a matrilinear society centered on goddess worship.
