Mayan Technology

Hi, it is Ark, today I am going to tell you all about Mayan Technology.  To start let’s compare our technology. now in days, we have laptops iPhones and much more. Mayans used parchment, ink and their letters are symbols. 

As I go on right all things that are similar and different.

The Mayans had 2 calendars. 1st was called Haab and the 2end was called Tzolkin. Every 52 years the calendars would have the same date. When that happened they would have a big Fire Festival. Every Fire in every household would be turned out and they would throw out all their clay utensils. In Canada we still use calendars but we do not have fire festive and we do not throw out our clay utensils. 

the Mayans wrote a hieroglyphic writing system. The writing began in 300 BCE. Some of the artifacts left by the Mayans have been fond and the writing is the hieroglyphic system. They would write about their history and achievements on pillars, walls, and big stone slabs.  We still use writing but we have a different alphabet. The Mayans wrote with shaps.

I hope you learned some think.
