#15: What Happened to the Mayans?
There are so many things we don’t understand about all the civilizations that came before us. Considering that some extremely influential and prominent groups of people simply disappeared without a trace baffles the mind… However, recent research has shed some light on certain societal collapses from the past.
The Mayans quite literally disappeared off the face of the earth and abandoned their civilization many, many years ago, and now we know why. No, it wasn’t due to an alien abduction or anything like that… Rather their civilization came to an end due to a self-inflicted environmental disaster. Their actions led them to leave their land, not some sort of extra-terrestrial activity.
