Topic: For this assignment you must select a specific technological advance by an ancient culture (before AD 1300’s) and explain the following points: My technological advancement is astronomy and mathematics in the Mayan civilization. What culture created it and when was this advance developed? Describe it in detail. How was this technology used? Give some archaeological examples. What made this technology possible (astronomical knowledge, mathematical understanding, control of fire, etc.)? In which way may it signal contact with neighboring cultures (was this advance quickly diffused to other cultures?). What does it tell us about the culture that created it? What were the implications for its culture and contributions for civilization at large? Citations: need four more peer reviewed sources Rafael Lara-Alecio, Beverly J.
