The decoration at Rosslyn was been linked with the idea of hidden meanings long before the Da Vinci Code. In the Lady Chapel there are a load of little carved stone cubes that are covered in unexplained dots and dashes. No one knows for sure what they are supposed to tell us. The best theory to date is that the symbols correspond to musical notes and a couple of musicians have managed to produce a piece of music apparently breaking this particular code
The St Clair family built the place and legend has it that the night before a Lord of Rosslyn dies the chapel will appear to be in flames only to be found completely untouched the following morning. Well there have been quite a few Lord Rosslyns and the place is still here and currently ungoing a £13 milion quid restoration which has included creating a complete digital model of the interior using a laser imager.
Now tell me they haven't fed this model into a very, very big computer to see what makes Rosslyn tick...
