Comments about PBS NOVA: Cracking the Maya Code DVD:

A great explanation of how, one small step at a time, the Maya writing system was decoded.
Every step was based on previous study done by others. A very good film.

Comments about PBS NOVA: Cracking the Maya Code DVD:

The combined efforts from the History, Linguistics, Astronomy, Art, Architectural and several other disciplines made the breakthrough of deciphering the Mayan language possible. Recommended this to a close friend who is going to work this into his Foreign Culture class curriculum.

Comments about PBS NOVA: Cracking the Maya Code DVD:

I sat in total awe as I watched the history of modern day scholars unravel the apparent mish mash of seemingly beautiful nonsensicle mayan symbols to reveal an awesome language depicting mayan history and culture. WONDERFUL!!!
