“The world’s most mysterious manuscript”

The University of Arizona carbon dated the Voynich Manuscript to have been made between 1404 and 1438, though otherwise everything about the book, it’s author, illustrator, the text, and its language, are a complete mystery. The writing in it matches no known language and has been of interest to linguists and code breakers since the early 1920’s. The Voynich Manuscript also contains botanical illustrations of plants that don’t exist, star charts that make no sense, and scenes of naked women bathing in green liquid that has traveled through a series of maze like pipes.
