Maya Civilization


History >> Aztec, Maya, and Inca for Kids

The timeline of the Maya Civilization is often divided up into three major periods: the Pre-classic Period, the Classic Period, and the Post-classic Period.

Pre-classic Period (2000 BC to 250 AD)

The Pre-classic Period covers from the start of the Maya civilization to 250 AD when the Maya civilization began its golden age. A lot of development took place during this period. The major cities during this period were El Mirador and Kaminaljuyu. Classic Period (250 AD to 900 AD)

The Classic Period is considered the golden age of the Maya city-states. Most of the artistic and cultural achievements of the Maya civilization took place during this period. Post-classic Period (900 AD to 1500 AD)

Although the southern city-states collapsed, the Mayan cities in the northern part of the Yucatan Peninsula continued to thrive for the next several hundred years during the Post-classic period. Colonial Period (1500 AD)
