What is happening in North America in 30BCE

Central America

The past few centuries have seen the old Olmec centers become deserted, but several regional civilizations are flourishing in Central America,. Population expansion continues at a fast rate in several areas, leading to the rise of major urban centers. The Mayan people are developing a city-based civilization in the Yucatan Peninsula, in present-day Mexico and Guatamala, and major cities are appearing at Teotihuacan, in the Central Basin of Mexico, and amongst the Zapotec, to the south.

South-West farming cultures

In the dry environment of the south-western USA, two other farming cultures, the Hohokam and the Anasazi, have appeared, joining the already-exisiting Mogollon culture.
