The
ancient Maya established their cities in the rainforest,
played games that went
on for days,

They chewed gum, filed
their teeth and raised bees without stingers.

Like the Egyptians, they built pyramids, often elaborately

Scholars agree the Maya were the most advanced of
all ancient Mesoamerican cultures The Maya originated in Yucatan
in Mexico, the area around the resort beach city of Cancun is today.


They developed astronomy, calendar systems and writing. They built
elaborate pyramids and observatories, all without metal tools. They
were highly skilled as potters and weavers Their centers began
to decline around AD 900, for reasons still unknown. Some of the
centers continued until the Spanish arrived in the 16th century.
