Description: Some historians regard the Maya as the most successful civilisation of all those to develop in Meso-America. What made them so special? There were over 30 different city-states spread across the region. Were they an urban society, or a rural one? And what exactly did happen to the Maya around 850-900AD? Was that the defining moment for the Maya, or was it the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th Century? There are around 7 million Maya alive today, many living in a traditional way. What can we learn from them about the Ancient Maya? And how do the ancient Maya compare with Stone Age Britain?
