Scope and content

English transcription: The Maya civilization is the first and most brilliant civilization of precolombian culture. It developped during the first centuries of our era on the borders of Guatemala, Mexico and Honduras and reached its height between the IVth the VIIth Century. However, social troubles stopped its development. Then the Toltec people came, conquered central Mexico by force and occupied the main part of the region during several centuries. The Aztecs, last to arrive and who were more aggressive, finally managed to dominate the entire region. Maya sculpture found at the Fortune-teller's Pyramid at Uxmal, Yucatan.
French transcription: La première et la plus brillante des civilisations précolombiennes, celle des Mayas, apparait sur les confins du Guatemala, du Mexique et du Honduras au cours des premiers siècles de notre ère. Elle atteint son apogée entre le IVe et le VIIe siècle, puis des troubles sociaux mettent fin à son épanouissement. Viennent ensuite les Toltèques qui s'assurent, par les armes, la domination du Mexique central. Ce peuple a régné sur la plus grande partie de cette région pendant plusieurs siècles. Derniers venus dans l'Histoire, les Aztèques, plus belliqueux, parviennent à soumettre les autres peuples à leur hégémonie. Sculpture Maya provenant de la pyramide du Davin à Uxmal dans le Yucatan.
