Storyboard Text

  • One theory of how the Mayan civilization declined is famine. 
  • It starts with the crops. The Mayans used the slash and burn technique for farming, which isn't sustainable for a long time. This could cause bad harvest.
  • There isn't enough food for all of us. What will we do?
  • We're all going to die!
  • The Mayans would've ran out of food and starved to death.
  • However, famine isn't the only theory of how the Mayan civilization fell apart. Another, more plausible theory is warfare. Since there were a lot of resources constantly being expended, the Mayan civilization needed a lot of materials. Once their own resources were running low, the Mayans may have gone to war to get more.
  • The Mayans had a big army, but also had many other small tribes fighting against them. They built defenses and weapons, which were discovered years later in the ruins of the Mayan Civilization.
  • Win or lose, war costs lives and materials. Over the years, the Mayan armies must've shrunk and the civilization may have been conquered and ruined.
