The Maya civilization is a Mesoamerican civilization, noted for the only known fully developed written language of the pre-Columbian Americas, as well as its spectacular art, monumental architecture, and sophisticated mathematical and astronomical systems.
Many of these reached high development during the Classic period (ca.
250 AD to 900 AD), however these advances were also in the Preclassic (or Formative) period which came before, and in the Postclassic period which followed.
At its peak, it was one of the most densely populated and culturally dynamic societies in the world.
There are hundreds of significant Maya sites, and thousands of smaller ones.
