* The Classic Maya, and to a lesser extent the early Postclassic (most famously the Postclassic center Chichen Itzá), had an extremely complex urban civilization and the only decipherable written language in the New World. Lidar scanning done in 2018 indicates the extent, infrastructure, and population of the Mayan Empire to be far larger than originally thought, with the Mayans having likely created the first city in the Americas with a population of over one million. The jungles had concealed the ruins so well, earlier archaeologists just climbed over these hidden temples, neighborhoods, and governmental buildings thinking they were just hills!
