Event Originally produced by First Run Features in 2007.
Summary For almost 2000 years, the ancient Maya of Central America recorded their history and ideas in an intricate and beautiful hieroglyphic script. Then, in the 16th century, Spanish invaders burned their books and ruthlessly extinguished hieroglyphic literacy. By the 18th century, when stone inscriptions were discovered buried in the jungles of Central America, no one on earth could read them.. BREAKING THE MAYA CODE is the story of the 200-year struggle to unlock the lost secrets of this ancient civilization.
