Development of the Mayan civilization
With the maximum splendor of the American civilizations, the continent entered its history thanks to the development of writing, especially by the Mayas from the year 292.
Although the isolation of the continent with respect to the rest of the planet did not allow an exchange of knowledge that would strengthen these cultures to prepare them for their future encounter with the other continents, their advances are of great universal value and have great validity, such as the calendar, mathematics, astronomy, geological observations and many other elements that are the subject of study today.
The splendor of the Mayan culture began in 292.
This period, the classic, ended in 900 with the decline of the Maya. Tikal, Palenque and Copán are among the main Mayan urban centers that were city-states.
This period also includes the Chavin culture that extended from western Peru to Ecuador in South America, between the coast and the jungle belt.
This culture developed between 1500 B.C. and 500 B.C.; that is, during a millennium, its hegemony prevailed in all Andean activities in the region or in its area of influence; such is the case of the recent discoveries in the caves of Talgua, in Honduras.
