Belize History and Culture

The ancient Mayans once lived throughout Belize, and over 600 of their fascinating ancient cities can still be seen here. All of the incredible ancient ruins are worth a visit, from the major site of Altun Ha to the little known site of Uxbenka. The history of the Mayans began around 2500 B.C and they thrived for centuries in the area that is now known as Belize. The oldest site is believed to be Cuello in Orange Walk, built back in the Archaic era. Then came the pre-classic era in which the cities of Lamanai, home to the largest pre-classic structure in the Mayan world, and Cerros prospered. In the classic period, the crowning period for the Mayan civilization, the enormous sites of Caracol and El Pilar rose out of the forest and ceremonial centers like Xunantunich built extravagant temples and pyramids. However, the prosperity of the Mayans didn't last forever, and in 900 A.D. most of the great Mayan centers collapsed. But the culture and outposts of the civilization lived on and cities like Santa Rita and Lamanai were still thriving when the Spanish came in the 16th century. In fact, Lamanai lasted until the 1600s when British sugar cane farmers drove the remaining inhabitants out to make way for their farms.
