1 – Voynich Manuscript
Let us begin our list of well preserved archeological finds with one of history’s biggest and most perplexing mysteries, the Voynich manuscript.
The Voynich manuscript is an illustrated book, of unknown origin, written by an anonymous author in an unidentified alphabet and incomprehensible language. Although an exact date for its authorship has not been identified, Carbon-14 dating has placed the creation of the book sometime between the years 1404 and 1438.
The manuscript has been the object of intense studies by both professional and amateur cryptographers but, to date, none have managed to decipher a single word. The Voynich manuscript is considered the Holy Grail of historical cryptography.
Speaking of Holy Grails, the next item on our list is a hoard of ancient gold!
