Bristol academic cracks Voynich code, solving century-old mystery of medieval text -

"In his peer-reviewed paper, The Language and Writing System of MS408 (Voynich) Explained, published in the journal Romance Studies, Cheshire describes how he successfully deciphered the manuscript's codex and, at the same time, revealed the only known example of proto-Romance language."


@StevenSaus Nice, the full paper is actually available at

This looks a lot more legitimate than the last guy who "figured out" the Voynich manuscript

@Tak Yeah, I definitely wanted to see "peer reviewed" in there.
