The ancient scripts website explains more about the meaning of the glyphs and how they are read.

More information on the writing and the codex that they were recorded in can be found on the Encyclopedia Britannica website.

Mr Donn’s website tells you a little about the writing and what happened to it when the Spanish arrived.
