Is there Pre-Columbian Writing at Teotihuacan? began as a study to yield a closer examination of a limited set of glyphic elements found at the archaeological site of Teotihuacan in Mexico, in order to verify whether said elements may be part of a writing system. The study of the glyphs presented in the book was structured in such a way as to thoroughly examine the data for similarities between the glyphic elements and the requirements for Meso-American writing systems.
This study was not decipherment. Instead it will attempt to verify whether the glyphic elements at Teotihuacan could potentially be a writing system, thus, concluding if further work in the way of a complete decipherment is a possibility.
