This website is about Maya warfare. The reason why we did Maya warfare is because we wanted to know more about how the Maya fought in wars, what they did before wars, and how they prepared for wars.

Here are some interesting facts about Maya warfare, some kings of the Maya people would order war to become a powerful leader. The Maya people used Steles, stone tablets, to represent the warriors. The end of the Maya civilization was caused when the cities broke up into there own tribes. The kings seemed to go crazy when the cities broke up. They increased war to become powerful.  All the cities got real secret.  It was like an ancient cold war.
