The Maya Hieroglyphics Study Guide provides illustrations and decipherments of many words used by the Classic Period Maya in their inscriptions. The chapter organization replicates the order of Classic Cholan ritual text: date - verb - object (nouns) - subject (titles, relationships, deities).
As noted in the index, this study guide has been formatted for double-sided printing and that each section has been identified with a roman numeral (Calendrics = Section I, Verbs = Section II, etc.) - for ease of use, it is suggested that each section be printed on a different color of paper.
Any use of this guide for sale or profit is strictly prohibited.
