The Mayan civilization was an ancient Mesoamerican civilization that flourished in parts of present-day Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, and Honduras from about 2000 BCE until the Spanish conquest in the 16th century. The Mayans were known for their advanced understanding of mathematics, astronomy, architecture, and agriculture. They created an intricate writing system using hieroglyphics and built impressive cities and pyramids.
