Bristol academic cracks Voynich code

Probably not the right place for this so I'm sorry if it needs to be moved.

A University of Bristol academic has succeeded where countless cryptographers, linguistics scholars and computer programs have failed—by cracking the code of the 'world's most mysterious text', the Voynich manuscript.

 

Although the purpose and meaning of the manuscript had eluded scholars for over a century, it took Research Associate Dr. Gerard Cheshire two weeks, using a combination of lateral thinking and ingenuity, to identify the language and writing system of the famously inscrutable document.

Your link doesn't work. In fact the whole is a hoax.

The OP's link did work when it was first posted, I read it at the time but it looks like it's since been removed.

We also have an ongoing thread about the Voynich manuscript, it's here:

As you can see it's been updated with various links reporting that the code hasn't been deciphered after all.

I think we can close this one now.
