For teachers and parents to help you through the game, here is the sequence of events that you will encounter:
At The Dig Site
You arrive at the Dig Site greeted by ARC1.
To move around the dig site, the mouse turns the camera and the 'w' key moves forward. You can also move left and right with the 'a' and 'd' keys. The spacebar is used to jump and you can interact with any object where a blue arrow appears when you look directly at it. Click the left mouse button to interact. You can also return to the main menu by pressing the 'm' key.
There are three items in the Finds Tent that can be investigated:
Copper Brooch. This will need reconstructing with the Reconstructor at the far end (left hand side) of the tent.
To reconstruct an object, click on the object in the tray, then go to the Reconstructor and click it. You will
see green beams flashing and the reconstructed item will appear after a short time. By clicking on the item you can move it to one of the tables and some additional information will appear.
Teracotta Pot. This will need reconstructing with the Reconstructor.
Roman Coins. These need to be washed by selecting them and then selecting the bowl of water on the same table.
The Finds tent also has a computer monitor at the far end which displays information associated with all the discoveries. Click on the monitor to cycle through the pages. To start with only information about the dig site is available but pages are added as discoveries are made.
When the three items in the Finds Tent have been examined, Lizzy moves down into Trench Three. Interacting with ARC1 will prompt you to go and see her.
Lizzy will ask you to help her with some sieving. Click on the sieve to place it over the bucket. Lizzy will then put some soil in the sieve. Click the sieve again to shake it. You will find two blue stones in the sieve after the soil disappears.
Go to see ARC1 and you will be taken back in time to the Roman Villa.
At The Villa
You will arrive just outside the villa gardens and will be greeted by the guard. He will tell you to find Brian the servant. Brian can be found in the main hall to the right hand side as you enter.
Brian needs you to find a missing key so that a bucket and mop can be taken out of a cupboard in the servant's quarters. You will find the key on a table in the library to the left of the main hall. Pick up the key and go to the large cupboard in the servants quarters the other side of the main hall.
You can open the cupboard by clicking on it and inside is the bucket and mop. Pick them up and go back to Brian. Interact with Brian and he will thank you for your help. He will tell you to find Paulus, the Master of the villa.
Paulus can be found in his study - go through the library and turn left into the family room and you will see Paulus to your right. Before Paulus will help you, he would like you to pass on a message to Bertia, the cook. She can be found in the kitchen which is the other end of the vills, back through the Main Hall.
Interact with Bertia and tell her the message then return to Paulus. He will now tell you to ask Murchad who is working on the villa grounds. Although Paulus indicates that he has a hut near where you started from, Murchad is actually working in the Summer House. If you ask him about the unknown objects, he will present you with a task - to replace some of the stones from the mosaic on the floor. These are what the blue stones were and are called Tessarae.
Having solved the puzzle, ARC1 will appear and will take you back to the Dig Site.
There are other discoveries to be made - at the Dig Site you can ask Ash, the other archaeologist about tools and the layers of soil that are found when digging. At the villa you can talk to the guard about his armour and equipment or Bertia about Roman food and Sempia (found looking after Portia in the bedroom) will tell you about Roman ladies clothes. Interacting with the scrolls on the wall will unlock the scroll discovery and you can also find out about Roman funiture and Toilets by clicking on them.
On the Main Menu (press 'm') you will find a discovery code that you can use in this app on the Home screen to unlock all the information about the discoveries that you have made in the game.
