Description
This is class 2 of 5 in Melchior's Period Crypto-riculum. Completing all 5 courses will unlock a special puzzle ... if you think you're up for the challenge. In this class we will be focusing on the cryptanalysis of two period ciphers. Techniques will be discussed & demonstrated for various ciphers with a special focus on two. Students will then be turned loose, under adult supervision, to test their new skills on several puzzles based on period examples. Materials provided. Ciphers will change between class presentations so there's always a reason to retake it!
