The ancient Mayan calendar has baffled archeologist and scientists for years with its accurate calculation of time and space. The Maya civilisation expressed their date-keeping with basic units in a day such as "uinal," "tun," "katun" and "baktun." Each component represents a length of time the Mayans used to calculate passing of days, much like our Gregorian calendar of weeks, months and years. With a simple online calendar calculator, you can translate your Gregorian birthday into the Mayan calendar format.
