The Voynich manuscript was meditating by experts to have contained codes, magic spells, alien letters and even communist propaganda before it was simply shrugged off as gibberish or nothing more than an complicate practical joke. Some believed it was a code or riddle never to be interpreted, despite the great Bletchley Park codebreaker Alan Turing reveal d become exhausting it a go. But a linguistics expert from Bristol University is certain the handwritten, embellished text from the 15th century is written in a long-dead language, called proto-Romance.

He also claims the fascinating scroll features matters of the female judge and parenting information.
Dr Cheshire said: “I experienced a series of ‘eureka’ before you can say jack robinsons whilst deciphering the code.’
He said feelings of “disbelief and excitement” like a shot followed having grasped the magnitude of the accomplishment.
He added: “What it carouses is even more amazing than the myths and fantasies it has generated.
“It is also no enhancement to say this work represents one of the most important developments to date in Nostalgia linguistics.
“The manuscript is written in proto-Romance – ancestral to today’s Romance languages incorporating Portuguese, Spanish, French, Italian, Romanian, Catalan and Galician.
“The interaction used was ubiquitous in the Mediterranean during the Medieval period, but it was seldom make up in official or important documents because Latin was the language of royalty, church and regulation.”
