Voynich Manuscript

The Voynich Manuscript was written in Central Europe 600 years ago, but scholars still have no idea what the pages say or even what language it is, as it’s the only known example containing its looped alphabet.

Researchers put forward new translations every year, but none have stuck so far.

Recently, artificial intelligence suggested the words are Hebrew written in code (as previous experts have also proposed), but that study was only able to match 80 percent of the words to Hebrew, and even then produced incoherent sentences.

The Voynich Manuscript has been been carbon dated back to the 1400s and includes illustrations of plants that don't resemble any known species. Read more about it and check out these equally freaky unsolved mysteries.
