Storyline

It’s 1846. You’re a professor of archaeology at the University of Oxford, as well as an antiquities treasure hunter. 

One of your fiercest rivals, Johann George Ramsauer, has just discovered an Iron Age cemetery near his home village of Hallstatt in the Austrian mountains. Rumour has it that among the hundreds of skeletons lies a fragment of a tablet from the ancient Middle Eastern civilisation of Assyria. Could it be true? How did it get there? Would this change how we see ancient history? 

You must leave for Austria immediately to try and find the tablet.
