Danube Valley civilization and Dispilio tablet is they were large and complex enough were probably forms of accounting for trade or logistics. That is the initial approach i'd take when looking at these.

The voynich manuscript stands out among all these texts because the work done to decipher it has now reached unprecedented levels of collaboration.

I personally don't think this document is genuine in the sense that it contains a hidden message: it's too focused on delivery. Having said that, every one has an opinion on this document, and if it does have a message, I hope to see it decrypted like the Copiale Cipher, which I found amazing.

Awesome article. However, I feel like they should have figured out the Phaistos Disk by now.

Peace and Love,


We were waiting for you Ricky.

If interested, please read Andis Kaulin's decipherment of Phaistos Disk at lexilinedotcom. He gave a scholarly presentation on it years ago, quite remarkable.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
