Review: Mayan Symbols

To see more go to: http://www.whats-your-sign.com/mayan-symbols.html

Find which sign are you, this is an article with information about the Maya signs and their meanings!

HOWEVER THE SCHOLARSHIP ON THIS SITE IS CARELESS, FOR EXAMPLE THIS PASSAGE:

“For over 3,000 years, Mayan symbols have long been a source of mystery and wonder.”

THESE STATEMENTS ARE TRUE, HOWEVER THIS REPORT SEEMS RATHER SUPERFICIAL

“The Maya were one of the few ancient civilizations to create their own writing system. Their symbols, or hieroglyphs are original to this Central Native American nation; most other civilizations borrowed from pre-existing systems of writing.An American, John Lloyd Stephens, and an Englishman, Frederick Catherwood discovered the first Mayan symbols in 1839. It was not until 1973 that the symbol meanings were discovered”
