     Settlers arrived in Tikal around the year 800 B.C. and settled on a small mound from which they started building their impressive ceremonial center.  Tikal was an independent city-state, which flourished for over a century, gaining a prominent position among various city-states in the region.  However, although each Maya City-state was independent from each other they were bound together through their cultural heritage, and their commercial activities.  Throughout the Maya World there was a shared knowledge and a common religion.  To learn more about the ancient Maya's art and religion, as well as their agricultural techniques and their commercial routes, their mathematics and hyerogliphic writing please click on the following links:
