GET TO WORK~_~(ASIAN EYES) Bok choy took on the world once RELIGION The Mayan religion( like Aztec and Incan religions) revolved around celestial and terrestrial cycles. These two cycles were put into different calendars. Priests interpreted these calendars and predicted the future. The Mayan religious puzzle as not been solved by scholars yet but it is known that the Mayans believed that the cosmos had three major planes: the earth, the underworld and the sky. The night sky was extremely important to the Mayans, they believed that the night sky told stories, the night sky was also thought to be the window to all supernatural doings, they also believed that the intersection of all possible worlds was in the night sky and finally like many other religions they saw their gods in constellations. Human sacrifices The Mayans were also well known for practicing human sacrifices in some cases people legs and arms were held down and the person heart was sacrificed, and the remarkable thing about this is that people would queue up to get this ritual performed on themselves. Not all sacrifices were preformed like this, for example: in certain sports the captain of the losing team was sacrificed. People with royal blood from other Mayan tribes were usually the perfect sacrifice. games and sports One of the Mayan games is known as 'the ball game'/ the Mayans knew it as pok-a-tok this game is played when two teams competed on a large stone court with rings on either end, but they were not allowed to touch it with their hands as well as not being able to let the ball touch the ground.
This game was draped with beliefs in that if a team lost their leader/captain would be often be sacrificed to the gods by priests who attended the game. Priests were not the only people went to the game, many spectators attended as well as high officials including many leaders. This games isn’t the only Mayan game other Mayan game include: Patolli Tlachtli Volador STILTS. JOBS

The Mayans had sophisticated and diverse ways. Mayans were know to use: raised fields, terracing, and forest gardens. Wild harvesting was also key to the Mayans agriculture. The Mayans were also known to plant a diverse range of plants. probably the most important food the Mayans harvested was maize, maize was the most common food in the Mayan kingdom and the maize god was one of the most important Agriculture Economy Mayan trade was vital to society .The economy was a mixed capitalist/command system. The government had control over areas considered vital to the population. The currency that was used was coco beans for small everyday purchases, but trading was also a key part of this system. Later in the Mayan time small stones were used like coins for purchases. Commodities played a key role in the empire with large factory like places devoted to making these commodities. Some of the commodities fine ceramics, stone tools, paper, jade, pyrite, quetzal feathers, cocoa beans, obsidian, copper, bronze and salt. Most of the main population used commodities such as stone tools, salt coco beans and manufactured goods. But the upper class used commodities such as jade manufactured furniture pyrite ect. These were used to show off their power and wealth. Probably the most important commodities was salt, not only was it used in the diet but it was also used to preserve food. The salt was collected by letting water evaporate and then the slat could be collected and distributed throughout the empire. Furniture and ceramics were also important to the empire. Artists were in high demand and were usually well supported. The City hey A Mayan city was the center of population. Mayan city were also the center of commerce, administration ect. The population in Mayan cities was more widespread and dispersed. The rulers house was situated in the middle of the city. One of the advantages of the cities was that they were usually on controlled trade routes which meant that there was constant flow of food into the city. Mayan cities would grow from the core outwards. Mayan cities were constantly growing with the constantly adding of building and infrastructure.
