Emblem glyphs[ edit ] Tikal or "Mutal" Emblem Glyph, Stela 26 in Tikal's Litoteca Museum An inscription in Maya glyphs from the site of Naranjorelating to the reign of king Itzamnaaj K'awil, — This section may be too technical for most readers to understand.

October Learn how and when to remove this template message An "emblem glyph" is a kind of royal title. It consists of a word ajaw —a Classic Maya term for "lord" of yet unclear etymology but well-attested in Colonial sources  —and a place name that precedes the word ajaw and functions as an adjective.
An expression "Boston lord" would be a perfect English analogy. However, an "emblem glyph" is not a "glyph" at all: This title was identified in by Heinrich Berlin who coined the term "emblem glyph". Berlin also noticed that while the smaller elements remained relatively constant, the main sign changed from site to site.
Berlin proposed that the main signs identified individual cities, their ruling dynasties, or the territories they controlled. Subsequently, Marcus  argued that the "emblem glyphs" referred to archaeological sites, broken down in a 5-tiered hierarchy of asymmetrical distribution.
Marcus' research assumed that the emblem glyphs were distributed in a pattern of relative site importance depending on broadness of distribution, roughly broken down as follows: Primary regional centers capitals TikalCalakmuland other "superpowers" were generally first in the region to acquire a unique emblem glyph s.
Texts referring to other primary regional centers occur in the texts of these "capitals", and dependencies exist which use the primary center's glyph. Secondary centers Altun HaLubaantunXunantunichand other mid-sized cities had their own glyphs but are only rarely mentioned in texts found in the primary regional center, while repeatedly mentioning the regional center in their own texts.
Tertiary centers towns had no glyphs of their own, but have texts mentioning the primary regional centers and perhaps secondary regional centers on occasion.
These were followed by the villages with no emblem glyphs and no texts mentioning the larger centers, and hamlets with little evidence of texts at all.
The debate on the nature of "emblem glyphs" received a new spin with the monograph by David Stuart and Stephen D. Some of these place names also appeared in the "emblem glyphs", some were attested in the "titles of origin" various expressions like "a person from Boston"but some were not incorporated in personal titles at all.
Moreover, the authors also highlighted the cases when the "titles of origin" and the "emblem glyphs" did not overlap, building upon an earlier research by Houston. Maya numerals List of Maya numerals from 0 to 19 with underneath two vertically oriented examples The Mayas used a positional base-twenty vigesimal numerical system which only included whole numbers.
For simple counting operations, a bar and dot notation was used. The dot represents 1 and the bar represents 5.
A shell was used to represent zero. Numbers from 6 to 19 are formed combining bars and dots, and can be written horizontally or vertically. These four examples show how the value of Maya numerals can be calculated Numbers over 19 are written vertically and read from the bottom to the top as powers of The bottom number represents numbers from 0 to 20, so the symbol shown does not need to be multiplied.
The second line from the bottom represents the amount of 20s there are, so that number is multiplied by The third line from the bottom represents the amount of s, so it's multiplied by ; the fourth by ; the fifth by , etc.EdmodoCon is the leading virtual PD conference, bringing together educators from all over the globe for two inspiring days of stories and strategies from the best in the education community.
