Names of the Americas

The ancient world is generally considered to have lasted until the fall of the Roman Empire around 500 AD. The Olmec and Mayan civilizations predate the fall of Rome. Other civilizations in the Americas, such as the Chavin in South America, did not develop their own form of writing. Their names from this period have not survived.
