were tombs. No one alive lived in the pyramids.
Some cities had many
pyramids. Some had steps the priests could climb, to bring them closer
to the heavens and their gods. They had to climb quite a ways. Some
pyramids were 200 feet high! Some had flat roofs where ceremonies,
conducted by the priests, could be held. Some pyramids were built with
traps to catch the unwary. If you did not know where to step, you could
be in a lot of trouble. Archaeologists have to be very careful when
exploring the ruins of a Maya pyramid.
