This essay is based primarily on The Proceedings of the Maya Hieroglyphic Workshop: March 13-14, 1993, by Linda Schele and Peter Mathews (1993), transcribed and edited by Phil Wanyerka; published by the University of Texas at Austin. (Order information.) An attempt has been made to update this invaluable information with current readings and recent discoveries. The presentation of hieroglyphics starts gradually and is tailored to beginners. Where not otherwise noted, all drawings are by Linda Schele, Peter Mathews or Merle Greene Robertson.
