Who were the Maya people?

The Maya created an incredible civilization in the rainforest where it is extremely humid, with lots of bugs, dangerous animals and little water. 

Here they built spectacular temples and palaces without the use of metal tools, the wheel, or any pack animals, such as the donkey, ox or elephant.

They were the only civilization in the whole of the Americas to develop a complete writing system like ours. 

They were only one of two cultures in the world to develop the zero in their number system and so were able to make advanced calculations and became great astronomers.

They were extremely advanced in painting and making sculptures and they played the earliest team sport in the world.
