The Mayan Calendar and 2012

December 28, 2011 1 comment

The ancient civilizations of Mesoamerica developed accurate written calendars and of these, the calendar of the Maya is the most sophisticated. Its precision derives from the fact that it is based on an uninterrupted, continuous count of days reckoned from an initial zero day.  The Maya counted the Kin (days) in several independent calender counts that were synchronized. One of these counts included a 365 day calendar – HAAB

This calendar is based on the yearly journey of the Earth around the sun in 365 days.  The 365-day year was divided into 18 named months or Winal of 20 days each.  The overflow of 5 days was named Wayeb.  Each date is written using a number from 0 to 19 and a Winal name represented by a glyph except for the days of the Wayeb, which are numbered 0 to 4.

Now about 2012, December 21 will be the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar which will mark the end of a 5126-year era, not the end of the world!
