24The Voynich Manuscript
An illustrated manuscript, known as ‘The Voynich Manuscript,’ remains a mystery to historians. In part, this is because the text has no known origin, thus rendering it almost impossible to track.
Still, that hasn’t stopped linguists and scholars attempting to solve the writing’s meaning. In fact, two people came forward in 2014, with one attributing the text to an ancient dialect, while the other believed it was a coded Asian language. However, through assessing the paper’s material, historians have at least managed to date the document to the early 15th century.
