Card 1A.jpg

Clue 1


Figuring out another word for 'Dove' may help.




Clue 2


Even dead languages can be useful...




Solution


Each pair of letters has been swapped with each other, slightly muddling the entire message. Thus an ABCD word would appear BADC and, in a long string, make very little sense. The plaintext is: "Have arranged for a local man to give you access. Meet him in town. His name is Alexander Edmunds."




Clue 3


The scientific name for the dove is 'Columbidae'.




Clue 4


Know that the bracketed text after 'Dove' is an encrypted version of 'Columbidae' should let you crack the cipher.





Card 1B.jpg

Clue 1


How are yellow, blue, and green related?




Clue 2


Yellow and blue make green. Or, looking another way, green comes between yellow and blue...




Solution


Each marked line yields one letter, specifically the letter that is equidistant in the alphabet between the yellow and blue letter on each line (except for the one line that gives you an already green letter, which you can take at face value). The plaintext reads: "Rosslyn Chapel."




Clue 3


Find the "green" letter in each line.




Clue 4


Each line has a yellow and blue letter (with one exception). You want to find the letter that, alphabetically, comes between the two marked letters on each line.

Card 1D.jpg

Clue 1


Don't go any further here unless you're starting to submit information online.




Clue 2


If you've been asked for a location for this card's artifact, and tried Rosslyn Chapel, you'll need to be more specific. What are these images telling you?




Solution


At Rosslyn Chapel there is only one grave found in the choir part of the building and that is the grave of "William Sinclair."




Clue 3


You've got a grave... and a choir.
