The ancient Mayans, who lived in parts of present-day Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, created one of the most complex and advanced civilizations in the Western Hemisphere. The Mayans accomplished many remarkable and influential achievements, most notably, in art, astronomy, and engineering. The achievements of the Mayans influenced the cultures around them and are still influential today.
Everything was perfectly planned out. As the calendar says, they have to sacrifice one of their own to please the Gods. The Mayan people would get together as a whole to practice their religious ceremony at the temple. The Mayan and Aztec civilizations are two ancient civilizations that were located near Central and South America. The Mayan civilization was more remarkable than the Aztecs because of their advanced knowledge. According to Document E: The Mayan Number System, the Mayans created the mathematics that people use today. This is showing how Mayans are very intelligent. They not only created a language, but they created a math system that people use 4,000 years in the future. Secondly, according to Document F: The Mayan Calendar, the
With both civilizations being developed around 3500 BC, there are many similarities and differences between the Egyptians and the Mayans. The Egyptians developed their empire in Northeast Africa, which affected the way they farmed and built their cities. The Mayans developed their civilization in MesoAmerica, which influenced their culture differently from the Egyptians. The farming techniques, architecture, and religion were all influenced by the environment they lived in.
In the Western Hemisphere, no early civilization was more remarkable than the Maya. The Maya are the best-known classical civilizations of Mesoamerica, originating in the state in southeastern Mexico, Yucatan at around 2000 B.C. They rose to importance around A.D. 250 in present-day southern Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and northern Belize. The Maya civilization was a Mesoamerican civilization developed by the Maya peoples. As being the most remarkable civilization in the Western Hemisphere, the Maya produced an extensive range of structures, and have left a great architectural legacy that places the Maya civilization as one of the great preindustrial civilizations of the world. Maya architecture also incorporates various art forms and hieroglyphic texts. Along with their great architecture, trade was a key component of the Maya
America and Guatemala are very different cultures; sometimes these cultures can be viewed in a poor light or it can be viewed in an interesting light, but I think these differences are very interesting and nice. One big difference that can be seen is that America loves upgrading technology and making technology to make life easier. In Guatemala, it is not like that. Guatemala does have some technology like smart phones and new types of cars, but if something is fine how it is, it is not upgraded and not much technology is made that would supposedly make their lives easier.
The Mayans’ greatest achievement was neither developing a calendar, nor establishing a complex trade system- but rather, the building of their gigantic cities. But what defines excellency? The answer can be categorized into four sections: significance, scale, genius, and effort. The ancient Mayan civilization thrived in isolation, and it wasn’t until recently that we began to truly appreciate their culture and accomplishments. However, it was their enormous strain many years ago that today results in buildings towering over 130 feet in height. This motivation that drove the mayans nearly 4,000 years ago also produced a variety of remarkable ideas and concepts, many of which we use today.

Long ago, a mysterious people populated the American Southwest. Hundreds of miles south, another mysterious civilization thrived deep in overgrown jungles. Soon after a few generations, both tribes disappeared without warning. The Mayans and Anasazis lived in completely different areas. Far out in the arid dusty American desert, the ruins of the Anasazi rise from the landscape. Whereas, the Mayans lived in the Yucatan area of Mexico. When people visit, they will find buildings that have crumpled to the ground with dirt and treasures waiting to be discovered. The Mayans and Anasazi had some aspects that were different and some aspects that were the same such as class structure, trade, environment, mystery of disappearance and belief system.
The traditions of the Mayan and Aztec religion and art are very similar but have their differences. The Mayan and Aztec was polytheism (belief or worship of one or more god). Both Mayan and Aztec people believed in human sacrifices. The Mayan had a ritual called bloodletting that was performed by the community but run by priest. The Aztecs believed that their gods needed a living human heart in order to be satisfied. Both civilizations had temples only for their gods that only priest could touch, any body would touch their sacred temples or pyramid would be severely punished. The other type of pyramids were used for praying and the other used for human sacrifices. Many

One of the biggest differences is the language; Americans speak English. The United States also have many other cultures mixed, since people migrate into the Unites States all the time. On the other hand, Guatemala does not have a mix culture, they speak Spanish, along with other dialects that are found in different parts of Guatemala. Some dialects that Guatemalans speak are: Achi, Akateko, Awakateko, Xinca, and many more. The United States also has many other cultures mixed in with theirs, since many people migrate into the Unites States all the time. As we all have witnessed on our every day routine, while we walk to our job, school, or any place, we will always come across a person who speaks a different language that we do. There are people from Mexico, El Salvador, Russia, China, Japan, India, Pakistan, etc. The United States is known for having the most cultural diversity, and that is one of my favorite part of being from here.
They’re strong warriors that would fight against the Spanish conquest; however their civilization had been in decline before the start of the Spanish arrival. There Mayan Empire was already crumbling and divided which made it easier for the Spanish conquest to take over the Mayan territories.
Throughout time civilizations have risen and collapsed. Some were conquered while others simply disappeared. The Egyptian civilization thrived near the Nile River from 3000 B.C. and was later conquered by the Persian Empire around 525 B.C. In the other hand, the Mayan civilization developed in Yucatan Peninsula around 200 B.C., and mysterious disappeared around 900 A.D. However, these two cultures share many factors in common such as developing calendars and building pyramids. Even though civilizations developed in different time periods, they can still have many factors in common such as environment, language, and architecture.
The Ghana Empire was discovered in Africa and it lasted from the 6th to the 13th century. Located South of the Sahara desert and northwest of the Niger River in modern day Mauritania and Mali. In 1957, when the leaders of the former British colony of the Gold Coast sought an appropriate name for their newly independent state. The first black african nation to gain its independence from colonial rule-they named their new country after ancient Ghana.
Ancient Native Americans civilizations is one of the most interesting civilization in the world. They came from the Asiatic part of Russia. Visiting the museum of natural history made me appreciate their culture and lifestyle. Six Native American tribes settled in North America that lead to the rise and demise of Ancient Native Americans. They were the First Arrivals, Olmec, Teotihuacán, The Mayans, Aztec, and Inca. Each individual civilization had a unique government, housing, foods, leadership, clothing and tools. Furthermore, they settled in the Americas(North, Central, and South) until they were demolished by the Europeans.
