Maya Stone Calendar   (for iPhone/iPad)
When spanish colonists arrived in America and started exploring the new lands they found countless ruins of an ancient civilization. Many stone structures, buildings, walls and columns were covered by stone carvings and nobody could determine their meaning.
It was thought that this creation was work of early civilization and glyphs are a form of primitive writing with no more than a few hundred words,
or don't represent written language at all. The civilization was called Maya. When first Maya researchers started deciphering stone carvings and one book which survived spanish conquests, they discovered that Maya had well developed mathematics and astronomy,
and those researchers created a romantic vision of Maya as peaceful people with deep interest in astronomy. As more maya researches and archeologists started collecting and putting together pieces of information a new picture was formed
- that of a big nation with sophisticated political structures and complex social order, violent, cruel to enemies as well as to their own people, with strong religious believes which required to give human sacrifices to gods.
Maya had developed a unique way of counting time. Their calendar consisted of different counts or cycles: Long Count, Tzolk'in date (counting days of maya sacred year) and Haab' date. However no one has heard Maya date spoken for more than 1000 years - until now.
