THE MAYA CALENDAR
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 (called Kin in Mayan)
reckoned from an initial zero day. The Maya counted the Kin in several independent
calendrical counts that were synchronized. The two most important were the counts
of 260 and 365 days. The Maya calendrical counts are written using a combination
of numbers and glyphs.
THE 260 DAY CALENDAR -TZOLKIN

It is composed of numbers 1 to 13 and 20 names for the days, which are represented by
individual glyphs. On day fourteen, the day number starts again with 1 and continues in
succession until 13 and so on. The day names are repeated on day 21 and so on. Both
cycles continue in this manner until day 260 in unique combinations of number and names
since 260 is the lowest common multiple of 13 and 20. After that the 260-day cycle repeats
THE 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 five 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
from 0 to 4.
