    The Mayans may have transported stones over long distances when they built their temples.


    Use context cluse to determine the meaning of the word condices...

    The writing of anciet peoples can be found carved in stone monuments, painted on pottery and walls, and preserved in codices, folded manuscripts books of bark paper or deersking.

    Can no find the word codices....is it some kind of tablet?

    It functions as a verb phrase, and it's synonymous with "might have transported" and "It is possible that the Mayans transported stones."

    2. Use context clues to determine the meaning of the word codices.

    I can not find the word "codices". Is it some kind of tablet?
