History's Mysteruies : Voynich Manuscript

Voynich Manuscript 


A medieval written in an unknown language and unknown script has baffled researchers since its discovery by Wilfred Voynich who purchased it in 1912 and made the finding of the book public.
Code-breakers, decryptors and professional cryptographers have had no success in deciphering this 15th century, 240 page manuscript.
It features six parts, which seem to indicate Pharmaceutical, Astronomical, Herbal, Biological , Cosmological and Recipe chapters.
One of the more interesting parts is the Herbology section which seems to have pictures that don’t match any plants species that we know.

History's Mysteries: The Shroud of Turin

The Shroud of Turin

Sometimes referred to as the burial shroud of Jesus, the Shroud of Turin is said to hold the image of a man who is said to have died from crucifixion.
Carbon dating tests suggest it comes from the middle-ages, but many believers say the shroud is in-corrupt, and therefore carbon dating that measures decay cannot accurately measure the age of the Shroud.
The Shroud is currently at the Cathedral of St John the Baptist in Turin, Italy.
As of yet no-one has been able to explain how the image was created on the shroud.

It was once known as the “Image of Edessa” and reported since the 4th century, there is also another cloth named the “Sudarium” (John 20:7) which is from Biblical times and said to have covered the head of Jesus in the tomb.

In a study conducted by Avinoam Danin, a researcher at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, it was concluded that the two clothes covered the same head at two distinct, but close moments of time.
Interestingly, the Sudarium cloth also has blood stains that are blood-type AB

History's Mysteries: The Iron Pillar of Delhi

The Iron Pillar of Delhi

A Pillar that never rusts is standing in the centre of Quwwatul Mosque in Delhi, India. Thought to be made around the 4th Century A.D. The pillar is carved with inscriptions indicating it was erected in honour of the Hindu God, Vishnu, and for the memory of the Gupta King Chandragupta 11 (375-413.
It has stood for 1600 years without rusting.

The Pillar stands at 7.3 metres tall, with one metre buried in the ground, its diameter at the bottom is 48 centimetres and tapers to 29 centimetres at the top, it is approximately 6.5 ton in weight.

How the rust resistant metal was forged so long ago remains a mystery, as does how the pillar came to be where it stands today, as it was most certainly not where it was made or where it originally stood.

History's Mysteries: The Lost Minoans

The Lost Minoans

On the Greek island of Crete once lived a great civilisation known as the Minoans. This civilisation is probably best remember for its legends of Theseus and the Minotaur.
The civilisation flourished more than 5000 years ago, but after a volcanic eruption on the neighbouring Thera Island, the civilisation declined and was wiped out 50 years later.
It is not known what ended this thriving civilisation, but theories include volcanic ash, devastated crop lands, and invasion of Greek armies
