These Mesoamerician calenders are amazing pieces of art, the intricate alone is spellbinding and many have found the end of Mayan time prediction to be a little bit worrying but in reality it has been fairly conclusively argued that the calender was never meant to signify a doomsday and in fact is only one calender in among a series of different calenders, imagine it almost like a cog in a clock, this cog has an important job but there are many others also (and also its circle to!).

So good luck with revision, have a merry Christmas, a happy new year and a worry free Apocalypse! Here are some things to keep you going in the meantime!
