The collection consists of articles on deciphering. Translation of a widely known book by J. Chadwick "The decipherment of linear B" takes up the majority of the book. It talks about deciphering of Cretan writing, realized by a British scientist Michael Ventris, in layman terms. The collection also encompasses works on Phaistos Disc, Lemnoss and Sardis writings, and many different scripts.
