DescriptionThis collection contains materials related to Terrence Kaufman and John Justeson's work on the writing systems of ancient MesoAmerica, and in particular the Epi-Olmec script. These materials were created between 1993 and 2004.

This collection contains 9 folders of 15 files containing documents about Epi-Olmec decipherment, Zapotec hieroglyphic writing, and the texts at Xochicalco. The bulk of the materials were given to AILLA by Kaufman for digitization and preservation in 2012. Some born-digital materials were given to AILLA beginning at that time. After processing, physical media was returned to Kaufman beginning in May 2018.

Some items in this collection are Public Access, and others are Restricted. Refer to AILLA's Access Levels and Conditions of Use for more information.

The digitization and preservation of this collection was supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. BCS-1157867. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.
