Bonampak’s Place Name Reply

In late 2006 I circulated this brief proposal for the decipherment of Bonampak’s ancient place name as Us(ij) Witz, “Vulture Hill.” As one can see in the photo, the site’s acropolis is was built upon the face of a steep promontory, presumably once of the very same name.

Here’s the pdf of the short note: bonampak-place-glyph.pdf
