France baffled by mystery inscription on rock

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A village in western France is offering a €2,000 (£1,726) prize for help in deciphering a 230-year-old inscription found on a rock on a remote beach.

Until now no-one has been able to make out the meaning of the 20 lines of writing, discovered a few years ago.

The metre-high slab is in a cove accessible only at low tide near the Brittany village of Plougastel.

Among the normal French letters some are reversed or upside-down. There are also some Scandinavian-style Ø letters.

Since no one can decipher it, who is to say that a person cant pretend to decipher it and make himself seem knowledgeable? lol, no one can tell him if hes right or wrong. (Because no one knows)

i know what this is. its a practice stone. when learning the trade of stone cutting and writing in stone often times stone cutters or inscribers would practice their letters on any available stone.

It's in French but does show more of the rock.

Yep interesting proposition, do you know any other picture of other  practice stone ? Could solve other strange inscriptions found too...it's a way simple solution.
