Kryptos…

I’m sure I’m not the only one frustrated by contradictory stories.

At the entrance to the New Headquarters building, the sculpture begins with two red granite and copperplate constructions  which flank the walkway from the parking deck. These stones appear as pages jutting from the earth with copperplate ‘between the pages’ on which there are  International Morse code and ancient ciphers. There is also a lodestone (a naturally magnetized rock) co-located with a navigational compass rose.

From the CIA’s Kryptos Page.

They revamped the Kryptos site a little, most recently a month and a half ago.  I am still bemused by the reference to “ancient ciphers”.  I used to think it just meant the copperplate screen but it’s very clear in the description that they are not in the courtyard.

So, what are they?

Anyone?
