What I did: While looking for articles, I found this one that caught my eye so I decided to take a look at it.
What I learnt:
-The first Maya sites were built during the first millennium BC
-The civilisation reached its height at around AD600
-Archaeologists uncovered thousands of ancient Maya cities
-The Maya were master craftspeople, proven by their distinctive art and architecture
-Around AD850, the Maya began to abandon their great cities, one after another
This article is about the fall of the Maya, which was a mystery for a long time. Scientists discovered possible downfalls of the Maya like droughts.
