Ok,

I probably know more about the subject than I'm letting on. You might be right, the Mayans used a base20 system which the historians claim is "all fingers and toes" but could also be attributed to the Jupiter-Saturn cycle.

Daniel Mansfield and Norman Wildberger from UNSW Sydney has made a few breakthroughs in Babylonian mathematics. I highly recommend them.

This one contains new discoveries of how they did trig:
