What Really Happened on the Mayan Calendar’s ‘Doomsday’?

History Documentary

This award-winning documentary explores the Maya calendar’s history and its connection to spirituality, astronomy, and nature. The Maya inherited their numerical system from the Olmecs and had a deep understanding of mathematics, which led to the concept of zero. They closely followed the movement of the Sun and regulated social activities based on its positions. The Maya calendar system incorporates a 260-day count, and the calendar wheel takes 73 rotations to repeat.
