Mayans

The Mayan civilization was spread through what is now Guatemala, El Salvador, Belize, western Honduras, and the southern regions of Mexico. The Mayans are well known for creating the only fully developed written language of pre-Columbian Americas. The Mayans were at the height of their civilization from about 300 to 900 AD, although there are still Mayans today in certain areas of Guatemala and Mexico.
