The Unsolvable Mystery of the Voynich Manuscript | The Worlds Rarest & Strangest Book

Macabre London

20-11-2023 • 41 mins

In a library in Italy, a deal was struck with a rare book dealer to purchase some items they no longer needed. When they returned back to London and unpacked, they realised they'd got more than they bargained for when they found a mystery book which was unexplainable and...unreadable! But, what was this ancient manuscript and what secrets does it hold...and will we ever find out?


Today on Macabre Mini Mysteries, we uncover the The mystery of the Voynich Manuscript.
