How to Read Maya Hieroglyphs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After a successful run in hardcover, this invaluable resource to the Maya language is now available in paperback. The spectacular writing system of the ancient Maya of Mesoamerica eluded modern-day decipherment for more than 200 years. This comprehensive introductory course teaches the structure and use of the now almost fully recovered script, and serves as a reference to its features and symbols. More than 350 glyphic illustrations appear, along with color photographs of hieroglyphs in their original context.

Synopsis:

This comprehensive guide to deciphering Maya hieroglyphs contains a complete outline of the writing, presenting individual signs and their meanings, the script's grammatical structure and content, and explanations of the sophisticated Maya calendrical and mathematical systems.
