Breaking the Maya Code (2008)

Only available in United States

The complex and beautiful hieroglyphic script of the ancient Maya was until recently one of the last great untranslated writing systems. Based on the best-selling book by Michael Coe, called by the New York Times "one of the great stories of 20th century scientific discovery," Breaking the Maya Code traces the epic quest to unlock the secrets of the script across 200 years, nine countries and three continents.

An exciting and comprehensive documentary of the people, places, and discoveries which contributed to deciphering the Mayan glyphs lost since the Spanish conquest of Central & South Americas.
