    Default "It was during which period ~" correct?

    Is the phrase "during which period" grammatically acceptable to use in a sentence?

    As in "It was during which period I did blah blah blah."

    thanks in advnce

    No. You could reword your sentence to use 'which' as an interrogative
    pronoun:

    During which period did I . . .

    or the object of a prepostion:

    It was during the period in which I . . .

    But these would change the meaning of the sentence.
