2010 Maya Hieroglyphic Workshop

Ancient Maya Hieroglyphic Workshop

The Department of Anthropology sponsored an Ancient Maya Hieroglyphic Workshop on October 1-3, 2010, at Texas State University.

The workshop focused on inscriptions from Quirigua, Guatemala, and was led by epigrapher and art historian Matthew G. Looper (California State University, Chico). 

As part of the events, there was a free public screening of the award-winning documentary Breaking the Maya Code (Nightfire Films, 2008 – 120 min.) on the decipherment of the ancient script.  This version runs nearly twice as long as the version aired earlier on PBS television.
