Mayan astronomy
It is safe to say that astronomy was the core of Mayan science. For the Maya, studying the system of planets and stars was a key to understanding the ultimate order of existence set by the gods. Trying to figure out how time and space work together, they tied objects of the physical world to temporal movements of celestial bodies. Although the Maya never used any specific devices to keep track of time, they could always tell what hour it was simply by looking at the sky. The changes they observed there also signaled a favorable timing for the planting season, religious ceremonies and warfare.
