Description

Unraveling the riddle of Maya language, this part mystery, part history deciphers hieroglyphs and presents the story of this ancient civilization. Young readers follow a team of archaeologists as they translate early messages and learn about these early Americans' spectacular art, monumental architecture, and sophisticated mathematical and astronomical systems. Inviting children to create their own hieroglyphs based on the Mayas, this adventurous reference is an intriguing account of code breakers, mysterious messages, and Mesoamerican culture.
