The Mayan Culture reigned on the Yucatan Peninsula, on the South-eastern side of Mexico, enclosed by the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. It was in this area, where the Mayans reached their superior degree of development. Nonetheless, the Mayan Civilization covered a vast extension, from Mexico’s Southern Pacific Coast and all the way in to Central America. Traces of Maya nomad settlements date back to 1500 BC. We distinguish mainly 3 Mayan periods of social and urban development: Nomad, Mayan Pre-Classical and Mayan Classical. These periods are relatively evident in their building techniques, their carved inscriptions on their pyramids, buildings and temples. The Mayans developed a structure of writing, using hieroglyphs; and so kept record of Mayan findings in mathematics, architecture and astronomy.
