History

The Maya is a Mesoamerican civilization

The Mayan civilization is known for their significant contributions to the world, such as their spectacular architecture, advanced understanding of mathematics and astronomy, and pre-Columbian development of a complete, written language.

Mesoamerica witnessed the height of Mayan civilization in the Classic period between 250 AD and 900 AD, although continuing with less prominence during the Spanish acquisition of the Yucatan Peninsula in the 1600 to 1700s.

Mayan civilizations extended along the southern part of Mexico, Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, and western Honduras.
