A palace of the Heroic Age. Scene from "Mythweb's Perseus, the Movie".

Heroic Age. A time, as conceived by the early Greeks of a subsequent era, when individuals unique in courage, strength and physical beauty performed their exploits. It coincided with the archaeological era called Mycenaean, when kingdoms produced glorious arts and crafts, such as the golden masks found on the site of ancient Mycenae.
