There will be a special interest day on the Maya on 18th February 2020

The Maya created one of the most sophisticated civilizations in the ancient world.  Their achievements in the arts and sciences, along with their complex social, political and economic systems, make them one of the most remarkable culture groups in the Precolumbian Americas. These people brought us an intricate calendar system, complex hieroglyphic writing, some of the largest pyramids in the world, a form of ballgame that was like no other and most importantly chocolate! We will discuss the major achievements of the Maya as well as pointing out the common misunderstandings we have of this remarkable civilization.
