The period before written records is referred to as Prehistory.
Prehistoric simply means before written records, so the date for the start of the historic period would depend on where in the world you are and when the first written records began. Sometimes places have a protohistoric period. This refers to a time when we have written records for a people but they are written by outsiders (for example Britons had no written records of their own when the Romans arrived, but we know about them from things the Romans wrote about them).
In historical terms a time before written records is called prehistoric. Prehistory can a vast period of time from the beginning of the universe until writing systems were created. Prehistory generally focuses on the relatively recent appearance of humans and human-like creatures.
It is known as the prehistoric period because it was the time in which there was no history recorded, because a system of writing did not exist yet. Hence the word PRE-historic, which inevitably means BEFORE history.
Before records were kept, right now we are in History, and we keep records now.
