D . built a major city with stone pyramids at Tikal on the Yucatan Peninsula statements about characteristics of the Maya's civilization are correct. The Maya civilization was a Mesoamerican civilization developed by the Maya people, noted for the Maya hieroglyphic script, the only know fully developed writing system of pre-Columbian Americas, as well as for its art, architecture, and mathematical and astronomical systems. The Maya Civilization developed in an area that encompasses southeastern Mexico, all of Guatemala and Belize, and the western portions of Honduras and El Salvador. This region consists of the northern lowlands encompassing the Yucatan Peninsula, and the highlands of the Sierra Madre, running from the Mexican state of Chiapas, across southern Guatemala and on-wards into El Salvador, and the southern lowlands of the Pacific littoral plain. During the Early Classic period, the Maya cities of Tikal and Kaminaljuyu were key Maya foci in a network that extended beyond the Maya area into the highlands of central Mexico. At around the same time, there was a strong Maya presence at the Tetitla compound of Teotihuacan. Centuries later, during the 9th century AD, murals at Cacaxtla, another site in the central Mexican highlands, were painted in a Maya style. This may have been either an effort to align itself with the still-powerful Maya area after the collapse of Teotihuacan and ensuing political fragmentation in the Mexican Highlands, or an attempt to express a distant Maya origin of the inhabitants. The Maya city of Chichen Itza and the distant Toltec capital of Tula had an especially close relationship. @ronlover101
