Regarded as one of the most sophisticated of ancient cultures, the Mayans built magnificent cities and were advanced in astronomy, math and languages. Mayan hieroglyphic writing is a constant source of wonder to scholars, as is the advanced calendar system they developed to keep track of days and foresee the future. The Mayans famously predicted that the world will end on December 21, 2012 A.D. A movie called "2012" was released in 2009 and was based on that Mayan prediction. Although conquered by the Spanish by the 1600’s, Mayan culture still exists in languages spoken by some six million people. The Delta Maya Limited Edition Pens honor the Mayan Civilization.
