Mysteries of the Maya
Here, you will travel deep within the Mexican jungle to the
stunning ruins of Chichén Itzá and explore the legacy of the
ancient Maya. After touring the site, create a codex like
the one on page 1037 of your textbook to depict an aspect

caption for your codex.

At this site, you'll deepen your knowledge of Mayan glyphs.
Go to Mayan Hieroglyphic Writing for a detailed explanation
on how to translate the written language. If you're up to
the challenge, you can attempt to complete a translation of
your own. You can also write your name in glyphs and listen
to the sounds associated with them.
