La ciudad recibía en la antigüedad el nombre maya de Zamá (que significa en maya amanecer ó mañana) y el actual, Tulum (que significa en maya palizada ó muralla), que parece haber sido utilizado para referirse a la ciudad cuando ya se encontraba en ruinas. Por los numerosos registros en murales y otros trabajos encontrados en los edificios de la ciudad, se tiene considerado que Tulum fue un importante centro de culto para el llamado "dios descendente". Aunque se han encontrado inscripciones que datan de 564, la mayor parte de los edificios que se aprecian hoy en día fueron construidos en el período postclásico de la civilización maya, entre los años 1200 y 1450. La ciudad todavía era habitada en los primeros años de la colonia española pero a finales del siglo XVI ya no quedaban residentes.

This panorama was taken in Mexico, North America

This is an overview of North America

North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.

The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.

The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III.

From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.

With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities. Expect massive leaps in creative output in your area!
