Around one hundred thirty years ago the discovery was made that the jungles of southern Mexico and the neighboring countries contained the scattered remains of a high civilization, the Maya, with a system of writing undecipherable and related to no other form known. In the last hundred years the system has gradually yielded its secrets, glyph by glyph, with the eventual result that we can now read a fair amount of the inscriptions. One of the truly great figures in this unfoldment was the late Sylvanus G. Morley of the Carnegie Institution.
