It is common practice to attribute the fall of Maya cities on a confluence of political and environmental challenges. According to Lucero, an analysis of speleothems, which are rock structures found in caves and include things like stalactites and stalagmites, demonstrates that the southern Mesoamerica region saw ″many severe — multi-year — droughts″ between the years 800 and 930.
The Maya were renowned for their achievements in the fields of astronomy, engineering, and warfare. It is still unclear what exactly brought about the downfall of the ancient Maya civilisation. Numerous explanations have been presented, but academics from all over the world have a tough time pinpointing the precise reason for this magnificent society’s demise.
Webster believes that it is a stretch for Gill to say that the Maya civilisation would have been wiped out since all of the water in the region would have dried up, despite the fact that Webster does not have an alternative explanation that explains the Classic Maya Collapse in precise detail.
