  • Maya Civilisation
  • Maya Civilisation
  • LOCATION: The Maya Civilisation is located in the peninsula between North and South America. It was located in the area that now includes parts of Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, Honduras and Nigaragua.
  • Maya Timeline .
  • Pakal the Great • Pakal the Great ruled between AD 615 and 683. • He became one of the most powerful kings of central America • He became a king when he was 12 years old.
  • El Castillo • El Castillo is the nickname of one of the Maya temples • The design of the temple has special astronomical importance. • Each face of the pyramid has a stairway with 91 steps, which together with the shared step at the top, add up to 365, the number of days in a year. • Climbing El Castillo is no longer allowed after a woman fell and died in 2006 • .
  • Mathematics and the Calendar • Mayan were skilled mathematicians. They had the concept of zero. • They had symbols to represent quantities - • a dot worth one unite • a bar worth 5 units • and a shell to symbolize zero. • The Mayans invented a calendar that tracked the year with approximately 360 days, with a name for each day of the week.
  • Religion • The Mayas worshipped the gods of nature every day. • Some of their gods included the God of Rain, Lady Rainbow, the God of Maize (corn), and of course, the God of Sun. • They also believed in the afterlife, including the underworld (or “hell”)
  • Writing • The earliest Maya writings found date to the 3rd century BCE • Maya writing used symbols called logograms which are like letters. • They also used a set of syllabic glyphs which are similar in function to modern Japanese writing (they represent blends like ‘ar’ rather than individual letters).
