The Mayans were located in Central America. They formed city-states. They constructed pyramid temples similar to the ziggurats found in ancient Sumer. They also developed a calendar and a numbering system. Other than that stuf we have no idea what really happened to the Mayan civilization, they just kind of disappeared.
