You might also be interested in "Breaking the Maya Code" which is a great historical account of the decipherment of Maya script.

There's a PBS documentary on deciphering the glyphs of the lost Mayan language. The modern Mayans now teach the lost language in schools, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5ppfC6y-5s. Corresponding book: "Breaking the Maya Code", http://www.amazon.com/Breaking-Maya-Code-Third-Michael/dp/05...
