By 900 A.D., the Mayan culture began to decline. It is not entirely clear as to why, however, many historians believe that war broke out between different members of royal families. This civil war made farming difficult, and as a result, many people died from hunger and disease. By the late 900s A.D., almost all signs of this once great civilization were gone.
We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The Pharoh Tutankhamun was laid to rest in a solid gold coffin.
