The most exciting field in Archaeology today is the work being done
by the epigraphers who are translating and interpreting the written languages
of the Maya. We are just starting to have a glimpse of this great mesoamerican
civilization. Now we know, not only that the American continent was inhabited
for a very long time, but that a dynamic civilization was developing before
that of the Greeks or Romans. The Maya were one of the handful of cultures
who developed an original complex written language.
