What happened to the Mayan civilization? It was huge and kind of just disappeared...
No one quite knows for sure. Some historians think a combination drought and deforestation ruined their food and water supply, and everyone just relocated elsewhere. Others theorize that their people were abducted by an alien race and are living happily on the planet Nibiru.
