    mayan history


    The Maya are probably the best-known of the classical civilizations of Mesoamerica. Mayan history starts in the Yucatan around 2600 B.C., Mayan history rose to prominence around A.D. 250 in present-day southern Mexico, Guatemala, western Honduras, El Salvador, and northern Belize.

    Building on the inherited inventions and ideas of earlier civilizations such as the Olmec, the Maya developed astronomy, calendrical systems and hieroglyphic writing. The Maya were noted as well for elaborate and highly decorated ceremonial architecture, including temple-pyramids, palaces and observatories, all built without metal tools. Mayan history shows that they were also skilled farmers, clearing large sections of tropical rain forest and, where groundwater was scarce, building sizeable underground reservoirs for the storage of rainwater. The Maya were equally skilled as weavers and potters, and cleared routes through jungles and swamps to foster extensive trade networks with distant peoples.

    Many people believe that the ancestors of the Maya crossed the Bering Strait at least 20,000 years ago. They were nomadic hunter-gatherers. Evidence of settled habitation in Mexico is found in the Archaic period 5000-1500 BC - corn cultivation, basic pottery and stone tools.

    The first true civilization was established with the rise of the Olmecs in the Pre-Classic period 1500 BC -300 AD. The Olmecs settled on the Gulf Coast, and little is known about them.

    They are regarded as the inventors of many aspects of Meso-American cultures including the first calendar and hieroglyphic writing in the Western hemisphere. Archeologists have not settled the relationship between the Olmecs and the Maya, and it is a mystery whether the Maya were their descendants, trading partners, or had another relationship, that is white place in Mayan history.

    It is agreed that the Maya developed a complex calendar and the most elaborate form of hieroglyphics in America, both based on the Olmec's versions.


    Maya had a complex society

    (Classic period 300 - 900 AD)

    Most artistic and cultural achievement came about during the Classic period 300 - 900 AD. The Maya developed a complex, hierarchical society divided into classes and professions. Centralized governments, headed by a king, ruled territories with clearly defined boundaries. These borders changed as the various states lost and gained control over territory. Mayan centers flourished in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, and El Salvador. The major cities of the Classic period were Tikal (Guatemala), Palenque and Yaxchil n (Chiapas, Mexico), Cop n and Quirigua (Honduras). For most of this period, the majority of the Maya population lived in the central lowlands of Mexico and Belize.

    The Northern Yucatan (where present day Cancun is located) was sparsely populated for most of the Classic period with only a few cities such as Dzibilchalt n (near M rida) and Xpuhil, Bec n and Chicann (near Chetumal). During the 9th century the population centers of the central lowlands declined significantly. This decline was very rapid and is attributed to famine, drought, breakdowns in trade, and political fragmentation. Fragmentation from large states into smaller city-states focused resources on rivalries between cities including not just wars, but competitions of architecture and art between rival cities. As the cities in the lowlands declined, urban centers sprung up in the Northern Yucat n, including Uxmal (near M rida).

    Anthropologists used to contrast the "peaceful" Maya with the bloodthirsty Aztecs of central Mexico. Although human sacrifice was not as important to the Maya as to the Aztec, blood sacrifice played a major role in their religion. Individuals offered up their blood, but not necessarily their lives, to the gods through painful methods using sharp instruments such as sting-ray spines or performed ritualistic self mutilation. It is probable that people of all classes shed their blood during religious rites. The king's blood sacrifice was the most valuable and took place more frequently. The Maya were warlike and raided their neighbors for land, citizens, and captives. Some captives were subjected to the double sacrifice where the victims heart was torn out for the sun and head cut off to pour blood out for the earth.

    The Mayan civilization was the height of pre-Columbian culture. They made significant discoveries in science, including the use of the zero in mathematics. Their writing was the only in America capable of expressing all types of thought. Glyphs either represent syllables or whole concepts and were written on long strips of paper or carved and painted on stone. They are arranged to be red from left to right and top to bottom in pairs of columns. The Mayan calendar begins around 3114 BC, before Maya culture existed, and could measure time well into the future. They wrote detailed histories and used their calendar to predict the future and astrological events. Fray Diego de Landa, second bishop of the Yucat n ordered a mass destruction of Mayan books in 1562 and only three survived.


    Post Classic Period - 1000 - 1500 AD

    Growth and Ruin

    After the Classic period, the Maya migrated to the Yucat n peninsula. There they developed their own character, although their accomplishments and artwork are not considered as impressive as the Classic Maya. Most of the ruins you can see South of Cancun are from this time period and are definitely worth a visit.

    Chichen Itza (near Valladolid), Uxmal (near Merida) and Mayap n (west of Chichen Itza) were the three most important cities during the Post Classic period. They lived in relative peace from around 1000 - 1100 AD when Mayap n overthrew the confederation and ruled for over 200 years. In 1441 the Maya who had previously ruled Uxmal destroyed the city of Mayap n and founded a new city at Mani. Wars were fought between rival Mayan groups over the territory until the region was conquered by the Spanish.

    Chichen Itza was first populated between 500 and 900 AD by Mayans and for some reason abandoned around 900, the city was then resettled 100 years later and subsequently invaded by Toltecs from the North. There are numerous reliefs of both Mayan gods including Chac and the Toltec gods including Quetzacoatl. For some reason the city was abandoned around 1300. If the Spanish did not make it a policy to kill all of the Mayan priests and burn books when they arrived in Mexico, we would all have a few more answers.


    Post Columbian Period

    Conquest and rebellion (1500 AD)

    The Spanish colonization of the islands of Hispaniola and Cuba allowed them to launch exploratory forays around the Caribbean.

    great site, lots of interesting info. best part, i think, is when mayan history starts. intersting that it is 2600 bc, when the "mayan calendar" that "predicts doomsday" on 21 dec 2012 started in 3114 bc. just thought that was interesting.

    kayythankss, 20/05:
    heyy. thank you so much for making this website! It was a huge help for me on my History project. But just a little something that would help future viewers is adding an author. It's really difficult to find an author (if there even is ONE) and for APA format, we have to cite the author in our body paragraphs. So just putting a name would have helped me more, but other than that it was a great site with extremely informative information. Thanks !

    this is col.is the world supposed to end on the 21 or the 23 of december 2012 cuz i've heard both of those numbers being thrown around as the "end of the world". Maybe the mayans thought that it would be the end of their civilization. Or maybe they just ran out of stone to have it go any further. Anyway if it is the 21st that will be the worst birthday my mom has. i garuntee it! lol.

    I am now dumber for having read the drivel contained in the tainted minds of the individuals commenting on this page. You are mostly comprised of dope smoking, maggot infested fm listeners who couldn't care less about history or the reasons for understanding history. You are the reason for the decay of civilization as we know it today. I am ashamed to be living in the same era as most of you.

    jesus, 01/06:
    um... YAY mayans! this is like SO TOTALLY HARD FREEKING CORE! yes! i LOVE YOU DARN MAYANS! hi.

    After having read several book, i can only conslude that you should update your website, The only comparison i can make i to texts from before 1950'. Therefore I can not recoment writing term papers or anything else based on the information found on this website. There are loads of books on early civilizations of mesoamerica and america in general. And just a quick tip, the closer you get to the source thus may the facts no be interpritated.

    Love it, 24/01:

    Hello, Good site but without in-depth research. Do you know that, zero wasn't defined by mayans. They did, but that wasn't exactly zero. And they were not very close too. They only defined a placeholder. Thanks.
