The Guatemalan Maya Legacy encompasses some of this ancient civilization’s most impressive sites with glyph-covered stelae, giant pyramids and vast temples scattered over many kilometers through the tropical rainforests. The Mayans' impressive achievements included a calendar system, knowledge of astronomy, the creation of agricultural terraces and intricate metalwork, including gold, silver and copper. Many of the largest Mayan sites appear to have been abandoned by around 150 CE. While the cause is unknown, archaeologists have speculated that their advanced agricultural systems and love of stucco plastering could have resulted in their demise.
