Taking readers into the world of the ancient Mayan code, the author explains how these hieroglyphs, once thought indecipherable, were deciphered about 40 years ago, and what the hieroglyphs mean. Includes a raised "Glyphmaster" so readers can make glyph rubbings just like real archaeologists, and develop their own secret codes and messages. Illustrations.
