Apocalypto fans might be forgiven for thinking the fabled collapse of the ancient Maya, the retreat of a civilization from pyramids and ceremonial centers across Central America from 800 to 1000 A.D., involved all sorts of cataclysmic events, war, famine and devastation.

Jared Diamond's Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed detailed how environmental disasters might be to blame, a popular scholarly explanation for the Maya collapse.

The end of the film told the story. Those Spanish ships were just the beginning to the end.

The Mayans were banished from Central America to Cambodia by the Olmecs! That's what happened to them and how they disappeared. The Mayans were evil and had to go.

That's quite a boatride for an entire race of non-seagoing people....................... :unsure2:

In the Yucatan Pennisula there is a rainy season and a dry season. I read somewhere (not on the internet) that scientist have drilled into a lakebed in the Yucatan and dicovered that from about 700AD-900AD the summer rains failed to happen.

As for their dissapearance, a 200 year long drought would be more than enough to make anyone move.

Well if Spanish Conquistadors are now being called an "environment" then yes!
