The goal of the Corpus of Maya Hieroglyphic Inscriptions is to document in photographs and detailed line drawings all known Maya inscriptions and their associated figurative art. When complete, the Corpus will have published the inscriptions from over 200 sites and 2,000 monuments. The series has been instrumental in the remarkable success of the ongoing process of deciphering Maya writing, making available hundreds of texts to epigraphers working around the world.


  • The Corpus will be a lasting contribution to the study of the Maya and will save much of the cultural heritage of Mesoamerica from sure obliteration. We owe a debt of gratitude to the authors.
