How to Make a Caesar Wheel
The Caesar Cipher is one of the earliest known and simplest Ciphers. It is a substitution Cipher which means that each letter in the plaintext (original message) is ‘shifted’ a certain number of places down the alphabet. So for example with a shift of one, A would become B, B would become C and so on. It is also known as a shift Cipher. It isn’t difficult to break like Enigma messages, so this is a great introduction to cryptography for new Codebreakers!
