Achievements on the mayans

Their best one was the Mayan calender because the Mayans had a very advanced calender it was so advanced that they made a lot of current day people think that the world would end in 2012 because that is when the Mayan calender ended. Another one is the Temples because they had huge temples and when they built them there was no iron tools to help them so they had to build it all by hand. The third thing is the farmland and they had a lot of it, they did it in wet lands so they wouldn't need to water them but they had no tractors or hoes so they had to plant and harvest all the plants by hand.

When and Where the Mayans Ruled

The Mayans lived in Mesoamerica from 200 AD to 900 AD and no one knows why or how they diapered.

What the Mayans invented

They invented Pottery and they also invented the pyramids by building the temples so that is another thing. The third thing was Ball courts and we don't use them for the same reasons that they did and it was to choose who was sacrificed. The last thing I am going to list is they invented basketball by playing a game the loser would be sacrificed.
