The Maya

Since being rediscovered in the 1840s by Frederick Catherwood and John Lloyd Stephens the Ancient Maya have fascinated the modern world. The classical period from 250-950 CE is characterized by stealae, a complex writing system, detailed artwork, a precise calendar and exhaustive trade link supported a population in the 100,000s. Then abruptly over 80 years the whole system breaks down.
