The Maya civilization begins around 1500 B.C., it extended throughout the southern Mexican states of Chiapas, Tabasco, and the Yucatán Peninsula states of Quintana Roo, Campeche and Yucatán.
The Maya area also extended throughout the northern Central American region, including the present day nations of Guatemala, Belize, Northern El Salvador and western Honduras.
The Mayan civilization is considered as among the most sophisticated of classical cultures.
The ancient Mayans are known for having built magnificent cities with excellent art and architecture.
They are also known to have been quite advanced in astronomy, arithmetic, and language.
The Maya writing system is made up of 800 pictographic and syllabic glyphs. Mayan hieroglyphic writing is a constant source of wonder to scholars, as is the advanced calendar system that they developed to keep track of days and predict the future. The Maya calculation of the length of the solar year was somewhat superior to the Gregorian calendar. According to the Maya the world will end on December 21, 2012 AD.
In the 8th and 9th centuries AD Classic Maya culture went into decline but the Maya cities of the northern lowlands in Yucatan continued to flourish for centuries more; some of the important sites in this era were Chichen Itza,
Uxmal, Etzna, and Coba. The Spanish started their conquest of the Maya lands in the 1520s.
Some Maya states offered long fierce resistance; the last Maya city state was not subdued by Spanish authorities until 1697. Much of the contemporary rural population of Guatemala and Belize is Maya by descent and primary language. There are 28 Mayan languages still spoken by about 6 million people in Central America and Mexico. A Maya culture still exists in rural Mexico.
