Each city state had its own ruler and group of
nobles. Great palaces and temples symbolized
the power of the elite. The Maya were
constantly at war over territory, lineage, honour or
the need for slaves for sacrifices.
Battles were short but frequent and usually took place
in May and October when the foot
soldiers did not have to be in their fields. Shown here is
a Mayan pyramid.
