Mayan Calendar Prophecies | Part 1: Predictions for 2012 and Beyond is the first part of a four-part series exploring the ancient Maya and their prophecies, predictions and mythology.

These prophecies were based on the Mayan belief that a 256-year cycle governed the rise and fall of civilizations.

Based on an analysis of events that happened in the past they were then able to make predictions about the future.
