The Maya recorded their history and ritual knowledge in screen fold books, of which only three uncontested examples remain, the rest having been destroyed by the Spanish. The Maya developed a highly complex series of interlocking ritual calendars, and employed mathematics that included one of the earliest instances of the explicit zero in the world.


The Maya civilization was developed by the Maya people, and noted for its hieroglyphic script – as well as for its art, architecture, mathematics, calendar, and astronomic system.


This was a gift for my husband. He enjoyed reading it.An excellent book, adding to the history of early mayan civilization.
