Landa's "Alphabet" is one of the best known items in Maya studies. A testimony of the collision of cultures and a stockpile of misunderstandings, the "Alphabet" has been labeled everything from a Spanish fabrication to a "Rosetta Stone." While we have a good grasp of what happened when the manuscript was written in the 16th century, there are still some vexing gaps in our understanding of the "Alphabet." In this workshop, we will take a look at the hieroglyphic signs on the pages of Landa's manuscript, based on new detailed photos.
