The Story of Codes – Stephen Pincock and Mark Frary
‘In the modern world, the very air around us hums with digital encryption. But modern times have no monopoly on secrecy. Over the past 2,000 years or so, codes and ciphers have played vital, often defining, roles in politics and culture.
From the ancient Phaistos Disc to modern cryptography and cryptocurrencies, The Story of Codes uncovers the history of secret communication across thousands of years. Discover the mysteries of the Voynich manuscript, understand the cryptic stonework of the Rosslyn Chapel, and observe the ingenuity of Alan Turing’s game-changing Enigma machine.’
