Mayans

The Mayans were part of ancient civilizations along with the Incas and the Aztecs. The mayans were different from the others because they were located in Mexico and Central America. Another reason they were different is because they built out of stone, everything they built was built in stone, From their houses to their Government buildings to their City Hall.

Incas

The ancient Incas were different from the Mayans and the Aztecs because they built their houses out of FieldStone which is a compressed stone that is made for building they were also different because they invented a way to write in string, which is most likely impossible nowadays. They were located in Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina where no other ancient civilization was located. They also had their way of art which was pottery which was in common with the ancient Aztecs.

The ancient Chinese

The ancient Chinese made lots of things from Tea To Paper To Gunpowder. But there are 3 things the ancient Chinese made that really stand out, 1. The Wheel Barrow 2. Gunpowder and 3. The Harness. All 3 of these advanced ancient china in different ways, like The wheel barrow made it easy to move heavy things like tools or building matrials, or stuff that you can't carry like dirt and soil. Gunpowder advanced ancient China by allowing them to make weapons that helped them fight (Even though they never won a war). Gunpowder also opened the door to fireworks for them to celbrate with they celebrated things like The Chinese New Year, and Birthdays. The Harness also helped them advance by giving them the opportunity to move animals like horses, pigs, and cows without a struggle.
