What Was So Remarkable About The Mayan Calendar?
- Used mathematics and sciences in the calendars that were way ahead of the time of the Maya
- Three different kinds of calendars:
- like our calendar and had 18 months consisting of 20 days each and had 365 days a year
The Long Count Calendar
- No one at this time really even had calendars but the Mayans had very detailed and accurate calendars
- Long Count kept track of time from the beginning of time to the end of time
- The Tzolkin was a calendar that kept track of the weeks which was just like our weeks today
