About Us:
After generations of enslavement engineering and digging tunnels under the whip of a cruel task master, the people of Bisim grew rather good at digging. Now, free to govern themselves as they see fit, it seemed unreasonable to leave valuable skills behind with their chains. Now, the people of Bisim use their skills to bring up the world by digging beneath it, to forge a future out of the past. Our company was born from these circumstances, and we soon hope to establish ourselves as the primer archaeological firm in the international community.
We send experts to nations around the multiverse to assist them in uncovering their own history. We are not limited by the challenge or scope of a potential project, even though in this business nothing is guaranteed. We offer a variety of archaeological focuses, as listed below, at a variety of scales. We charge a flat rate for each scale of dig, and will charge a fair price for the discovery and delivery of artifacts found by our team. Should an item not be claimed by it's nation of origin within a timely manner, or rejected by that nation, it may be sold on our second hand market.

Our Business Model:
We charge an affordable flat rate for the undertaking of an archaeological survey within your nation. Afterwards, you have the option to purchase the artifacts found during that survey. All artifacts found during the expedition are sent to B.A.S. offices for research. By placing an order with us, you grant that artifacts found and studied by B.A.S become property of the Narnian Republic of Bisim. This is minimizes customer risk, as if in the rare event a dig turns out to be fruitless, the capital lost is not too severe. Should no artifacts be found, it is B.A.S., and not your nation, that loses money.

Below is a breakdown of your options for how we perform our services.
Operation Scale:
  • Standard Dig- $15,000
    An intensive dig into a confined area. This scale is best suited to investigations into ruins, battlefields, or other locations of known historical significance. Artifacts discovered are usually small but may be numerous.
  • Large Dig- $30,000
    As the price would suggest, this option is about twice as vast as the Standard package. This scale is best suited to larger places of historical significance, such as cities, or prominent geological features such as mountains. Artifacts discovered on these sites range widely in scale and value, but will generally always be more impressive than those found on Standard digs.
  • Field Survey- $100,000+
    Our primer product and our largest scale service available. Top Bisi Archelogists in your selected field of study will survey a large area of land searching for promising sites. Once found that site will be fully explored. This scale provides the greatest potential, ideal if you are searching for lost temples, tombs, or even cities. However, there is the largest room for disappointment, as most parts of your nation probably don't contain hidden treasures. Afterwards, you will not be charged for specific artifacts, but based on the hours of work our staff completes.

Fields of Study:
B.A.S. has experts in a variety of fields. You may choose up to three fields for our staff to focus on. Of course, just because a field is not selected doesn't mean we won't discover something of that variety.
  • Military Archaeology
  • Religious Archaeology
  • General Ethno-Archaeology
  • Modern-Era Archaeology
  • Medieval Archaeology
  • Ancient-Era Archaeology
  • Prehistoric Archaeology

(OOC: Nations with Factbooks/histories are more likely to get artifacts in line with your idea of your nation's history.)


Each purchase is entitled to one discount, should they met the requirements to apply one. The largest discount will always be applied. These discounts will be applied by B.A.S. after your order is submitted. Discounts do not apply to artifact values.
Available Discounts:
  • Member of the Region Narnia- 50% off.
  • Ambassadorial Presence in Bisim- 5% off.

Is there any information about your nation or this location our experts should be aware of? It was the site of a major battle between the proto-Bavarian's and a local tribe known as the Larensie, who were similar to Celts culturally. The original proto-Bavarians were somewhat similar to 800's Norse. It was during this battle that numerous folk hero's for both the Larensie and proto-Bavarians were killed. Both the Larensie and proto-Bavarians used iron tools.

THE DUETSCHESS KAISERRIECH
“GLORY TO THE KAISERIN”
TO: THE CEO OF B.I.S



I would like to enlist the service of B.I.S for the excavation of the remains of combatants of the third Weltkrieg in the Kārsava Municipality at the exact coordinates of 56.7600° N, 27.5615° E. We would like the dig to expand a three-kilometer radius from the given coordinates. The exact artifacts we expect that the team finds are German and Russian soldier remains. The area is the site of the Battle of Ruskulova Forest where the German 67th Infantry division of the 6th Army clashed with the Soviet 67th Guards Infantry of the 12th army for control of the town of Kārsava and it's the important 6th Latvian highway. Approximately 3,210 Germans and 3,121 were KIA or MIA in the battle. We would like the team to locate the remains and excavate them. Our organization will ensure the transportation of the remains to our high tech DNA facilities in Danzig where they shall be identified and returned to their families. Any that can not be identified shall be buried in the Heroes Hill Cemetery, Kiev. Their families deserve to have their loved ones returned and at the very least know what happened to them. Below is our application. Payment shall be handled by Gunda Manteuffel of our funding division. We thank B.A.S for their service to the Kaiserriech and the Russian Federation.

Is there any information about your nation or this location our experts should be aware of?This may challenge everything we've previously known about the Chiseled-Hoe Makers, Rezmaeristan's first inhabitants and the predecessors of the Pass Riders. We previously thought of them as primitive tribal farmers, but this small collection of stone structures on a hill suggests differently. If they knew stone construction, what else could they do? And how did this fail to become a civilization? Was it entirely the Pass Riders' fault?
Kunifi-Katar is believed to have been built around 4,300 BC, based on carbon dating and analysis. The Chiseled Hoe-Makers arrived around 40,000 BC from the Middle East and are believed to have developed farming around 5,000 B.C. It's not clear how close they were to civilization when the Pass Riders arrived in 3,000 BC.

To my patrons in the Kingdom of Lesser Bavaria,

My name is Dr. Jeremy Müller, and I have had the honor of leading the dig in your Kingdom, the first of its kind under the banner of the Bisi Archaeology Survey. I thank you for the warm hospitality of your people, and the opportunity to research in your Kingdom.

As you are no doubt aware, the area of Rockingholm has undergone a great deal of change over the year, both environmentally and culturally. Because of the dynamic nature of the site, our team was unable to find any organic material that could reasonably be related to the battle you wished us to investigate. Such an area is not suited to the preservation of bodies or even unfinished wooden tools.

However, our labors were not fruitless, as iron weapons from the era you mentioned were indeed uncovered. We found a number of iron Larensie weapons; sword, spear heads, knives and, the central part of a wooden shield. The orderly manner in which these artifacts were distributed implies that they were buried along with the bodies of the fallen, which have since decayed. Proto-Bavarian weapons were also uncovered. These were almost universally iron axe heads (14 in total), which were discovered across the battlefield in seemingly random patterns. This implies they likely broke free from the wooden handles to which they were attached in the heat of battle. Images of these artifacts can be found below.

Our offices estimate that the Larensie artifacts cost $25,000, and the lot of 14 Proto-Bavarian Axe Heads costs $12,500. Should you be willing to purchase these items, please reply at your earliest convenience.

Sincerely,
Dr. Jeremy Müller

To my dearest patrons in Reino do Brazil,

My name is Dr. Susanna Collins, and I have had the honor of leading the dig in your Kingdom. I thank you for the warm hospitality of your people, and the opportunity to research in your Kingdom.

The area you requested my team an I to survey, North Uruk, was an extremely densely forested area, as you well know. Because of that, it was difficult to do any traditional surveying on a large scale. My team and I used areal imaging to scout out the best areas to dig, and then traveled on foot or via waterways to our destination.

Our most impressive and surprising find is what I write to you today to relate. In the South Eastern most region of North Uruk, my team and I discovered a ritual site, clearly used by the native nomadic tribes people of the area in the thousands of years prior to colonial contact.

It seems this place, the exact coordinates of which have been emailed to your cultural affairs office, was a sexual ritual site specific to the men of the area. We can tell this as the stone cave walls have been decorated with homoerotic imagery. Most of the iconography is not suitable to public posting here, but attached is an example of the style of paintings.

Image


Also found at the site were a large quantity (56) stone phallic shaped objects. It is clear from these objects design that they are meant to resemble male genitalia. Their exact purpose is unknown, but I believe it is likely they were used in some homoerotic ritual. Other members of my team theorize they were brought as offerings before some fertility god. Regardless, they are fascinating and beautiful, though we will refrain from posting pictures of them here.

Should you wish to purchase these ancient stone male genitalia, B.A.S. offices estimate their value as a complete set is $64,000. Should you wish to purchase only a portion of the collection for a lesser sum, that would also be acceptable. It is worth noting that they range greatly in length and girth, so if you only want the large ones, that would be understandable.

Sincerely,
Dr. Jeremy Müller

To my partons The Deutschess Kaiserreich,

My name is Dr. George Foley, and I have had the honor of leading the dig in your Kingdom, the first of its kind under the banner of the Bisi Archaeology Survey. I thank you for the warm hospitality of your people, and the opportunity to research in your Kingdom.

This was an large scale undertaking, but one that I knew was incredibly important to get right. As such, I took the liberty of hiring 40 forensic archaeologists- experts in human remains and identification. With their help, we were much better able to survey and respectfully recover the fallen within the 3 kilometer area you specified.

In total, my team and I recovered the remains of 2,854 Germans and 2,431 Russians, along with 40 bodies whose nationality could not be determined. In addition, 74 pieces of bodies, namely arms and legs were discovered that had no connection to any other remains. Of the 2,854 German remains, 220 could be positively identified based off dog tags or other personal details. Given that we were working with a mostly German team, the success rate for identify Russian soldiers was much lower, with only 44 being positively identified.

Of course, as stated earlier, we would never dream of charging anything for the return of the remains of these lost heroes. Additionally, we will not charge for any relics of warfare found on the battlefield as well. However, employing a team large enough to handle an investigation of this size is not inexpensive. My team worked hard, as did many of the locally hired men from your nation that helped with the survey. To ensure they are paid appropriately, I ask for a payment of $260,000. As is noted in the contract you agreed to, Field Surveys are liable to running over budget, so I hope this comes as no surprise to you.

It has been a pleasure working with your nation and with your people. Should you choose to order from B.A.S. again, I would be happy to work the case.

To my dearest patrons in Reino do Brazil,

My name is Dr. Susanna Collins, and I have had the honor of leading the dig in your Kingdom. I thank you for the warm hospitality of your people, and the opportunity to research in your Kingdom.

The area you requested my team an I to survey, North Uruk, was an extremely densely forested area, as you well know. Because of that, it was difficult to do any traditional surveying on a large scale. My team and I used areal imaging to scout out the best areas to dig, and then traveled on foot or via waterways to our destination.

Our most impressive and surprising find is what I write to you today to relate. In the South Eastern most region of North Uruk, my team and I discovered a ritual site, clearly used by the native nomadic tribes people of the area in the thousands of years prior to colonial contact.

It seems this place, the exact coordinates of which have been emailed to your cultural affairs office, was a sexual ritual site specific to the men of the area. We can tell this as the stone cave walls have been decorated with homoerotic imagery. Most of the iconography is not suitable to public posting here, but attached is an example of the style of paintings.



Also found at the site were a large quantity (56) stone phallic shaped objects. It is clear from these objects design that they are meant to resemble male genitalia. Their exact purpose is unknown, but I believe it is likely they were used in some homoerotic ritual. Other members of my team theorize they were brought as offerings before some fertility god. Regardless, they are fascinating and beautiful, though we will refrain from posting pictures of them here.

Should you wish to purchase these ancient stone male genitalia, B.A.S. offices estimate their value as a complete set is $64,000. Should you wish to purchase only a portion of the collection for a lesser sum, that would also be acceptable. It is worth noting that they range greatly in length and girth, so if you only want the large ones, that would be understandable.

Sincerely,
Dr. Jeremy Müller

From. Jaime Fidalgo, Minister of Culture of The United Kingdom of Reino do Brazil

Dear Dr. Collins

Firstly I would like to thank you for all the work, effort and professionalism that was demonstrated by you and your team on this project. Our scientific community had no idea of the existence of this rupestrian art and our universities are more eager to understand better the pre-historic period of Uruk and to preserve it.

The Government wants to create a national park in the perimeter in order to allow students and visitors access to the site. By law and by the creation of a national park all the patrimony is automatically nationalized. Still the Prime-Minister instructed me to pay you the amount of 64000 nation states dollars for the work developed. We would like to see more of you in our scientific community.
Thank you for your attention.

Yours Sincerely

The King of Lesser Bavaria has expressed his happiness regarding the successful dig at Larensie Battlefield #2 in the Rockingholm Woodland. This particular battlefield holds significant sentimental value to the King, who oftentimes visited it as a child. Indeed, we know far too little about the native Larensie who once inhabited our great nation, along with our ancestors; The Proto-Bavarians. Our Royal History Preservation Committee has had immense dissatisfaction with previous digs from our domestic archaeological teams. Thus, the success of the Bisi Archaeology Survey is relatively significant and interesting news in the nation.

We are pleased with the work of Dr. Jeremy Müller and have decided to award him the Lesser Bavarian Bronze Star of Archaeology. Should Dr. Müller choose to accept, we will hold a small ceremony at Larensie Battlefield #2. Regardless of whether the Award is accepted, the Committee would like to contract the Dr. and Bisi Archaeological Survey for another, larger dig. The correct form will be attached to the bottom of this letter, outlining the dig. Regarding the artifacts found in the Larensie Battlefield #2 Dig, we are willing to pay the full price of 37,500$ NSD for both the Proto-Bavarian Ax Heads and Larensie Artifacts. Their intended destination is the Stazenberg Historical and Cultural Museum. Thank you for your time and dedication.


Nation Name: The Kingdom of Lesser Bavaria
Location of Project with Nation: Rockingholm Woodland (Northern Section)

Please select an Operation Scale below:
  • Standard Dig- $15,000 [ ]
  • Large Dig- $30,000 [ ]
  • Field Survey- $100,000+ [X]
Please select between zero and three Fields of Study below:
  • Military Archaeology [ ]
  • Religious Archaeology []
  • General Ethno-Archaeology [X]
  • Modern-Era Archaeology [ ]
  • Medieval Archaeology [ ]
  • Ancient-Era Archaeology [X]
  • Prehistoric Archaeology [X]

Is there any information about your nation or this location our experts should be aware of? The northern section of the Rockingholm Woodland is believed to have once been the home of the Larensie peoples, an indigenous elven race of which Bisim's Archaeological Survey is already aware of through Dr. Jeremy Müller. Similar to the Celtic people's, their entire history seems to have been spent in this relatively large patch of Woodland. The Larensie are known to have buried their dead and to have had both ground and tree villages. They are believed to have been killed off and interbred out by the early Proto-Bavarian's. Following their extinction, the Rockingholm Woodland was inhabited by the Proto-Bavarians, whose descendants still occupy this area of the Woodland. The locals of the Rockingholm Woodlands have been instructed to cooperate with Bisi Archaeological Survey.

There have been numerous rebellions and wars fought around the area. The Kingdom of Lesser Bavaria is a Fantasy-Medieval tech nation, thus we are unaware of firearms.

To the Lesser Bavarian Royal History Preservation Committee Head Werner Vichter,

I must thank you for your kind letter of gratitude and praise. I must confess when I took this job I never expected to be so warmly treated by your people. Nor did I expect the great joy I would find in helping the global historical community understand more about your past.

After much convincing from my lovely wife Maria, and checking with my supervisors at B.A.S. I have decided to accept your Lesser Bavarian Bronze Star of Archaeology. I have never been honored in such a way by a foreign nation, so I have little ability to express my profound gratitude to you. My family and I will gladly travel to attend the ceremony.

I only ask that the event take place before my work on the Field Survey you've requested begins. I have found myself unable to focus on work since hearing of my nomination. I would like to give my full attention to the Field Survey, as I'm sure you would want me to. After the ceremony, I assure you I will work ceaselessly to further uncover the history of your land.

Your obedient servant
Dr. Jeremy Müller

To the dear Kingdom of Lesser Bavaria,

We are delighted that your illustrious Kingdom has requested our services again. Your request for a Field Survey at Rockingholm Woodland (Northern Section) has been approved. A charge of $95,000 been billed to your offices, as your 5% discount as a returning customer has been applied.

Per your request Dr. Jeremy Müller will be leading the expedition. Because of the scope of the dig and the importance of your satisfaction to us, Dr. Bryce Lewis, an expert in Fantasy Archaeology, has been assigned as the co-leader. You will receive a telegram notifying you of the completion of the dig. The results will be posted in this thread, afterwards you may determine if you desire to retain any of the artifacts found.

Due to the grand nature of this Field Survey, we expect this project to take significantly longer that your previous order. Additional expenses may be required to ensure the quality of the project remains to our standards.

To my patrons in Rezmaeristan,

My name is Dr. Shannon Kowalska, and I have had the honor of leading the dig in your nation. I thank you for the warm hospitality of your people, and the opportunity to research in your lands. I will say up front that our investigations did not lead to any large artifacts being found. This is due, as you are well aware, to the age of the site in question, and it's lack of preservation. It is extra ordinarily hard to uncover artifacts from these types of sites without destroying the ruins left behind, something we of course would never do.

However, that is not to say nothing interesting was discovered during our investigation. You may not be aware, but Polaris has not always been the North Star in our night sky. In fact, during the time of the Chiseled-Hoe Makers, a star we today call Thuban was the North Star. A chart included below demonstrates the progression of the North Star.

Image


Using this information, our staff worked with Astronomers from Lombardi University to determine that the 12 small stone structures in the area were aligned with the 12 constellations of the Zodiac as the appeared during that time. With this in mind, it is probable that these structures were some sort of religious site, connected to the Zodiac. Even cultures with the most primitive technology are able to look to the skies, and it appears that's just what the people of this site did.

Further, many human bones fragments were found inside the ruins of the 12 stone structures, but none outside of them. The largest of these pieces of bones was less than a half of an inch in length. The majority of these fragments showed some signs of burning. Our team has two theories on this, the first being that these structures served as sites for funeral fires, and that the funerals would be held in them during the period of that appropriate zodiac. Others on the team theorize this was a location for human sacrifice to the gods of the Zodiac. Further investigation is encouraged to uncover more about this practice.

We hope you found these discoveries as fascinating as my team and I did. I look forward to hearing your future plans for this site.

Sincerely,
Dr. Shannon Kowalska,

It is our pleasure to inform you that the Secretariat of Culture's Agency for Public Park Properties intends to establish a national park and museum around Kunifi-Katar. During and after construction of the museum and park facilities, our archeologists will continue to investigate the site; this is expected to increase public interest in the site as it will be frequently updated based on our new theories.

TO: Bisi Archaeology Survey, Narnian Republic of Bisim
FROM: Ephram Schweiger, Ph.D., Director of Antiquities, Ximean Ministry of the Interior
SUBJ: Request for field survey, Alden Marsh, Ximea

MSG BEGINS:

Our archaeological studies of the Lamprey Cult, a poorly understood ethnopolitical entity that inhabited the southern half of our continent thousands of years ago, have detected a number of lost cities as well as trade routes between them. Computer modeling of these trade routes, taking into account our knowledge of the local geography at that time and expected patterns of resource exploitation and utilization, have suggested the existence of an unknown site of large population and great importance within the Alden Marsh. However, first-hand records from this civilization are extremely rare and none describe such a location. In view of both the uncertainty of the site's existence and archaeological importance and the difficulty of excavating in a wetland environment, we have decided to contract initial field surveys to a third party. We therefore solicit your services in surveying the described site within Alden Marsh.

Nation Name: The Scientific Technocracy of Ximea
Location of Project with Nation: Alden Marsh, 250 km nw of the city of Avicenna

Is there any information about your nation or this location our experts should be aware of? The region is marshland, which we expect to present operational difficulties. While the region is not classed as protected wetland, we request that care be taken to minimize environmental damage (e.g., chemical contamination and dumping) during the dig.

Gunung Padang is a megalithic site located in Karyamukti village, Cianjur regency, West Java Province of Indonesia, 30 km southwest of the city of Cianjur or 6 kilometers from Lampegan station. It has been called the largest megalithic site in all of Southeastern Asia, and has produced carbon dating results which, if confirmed, suggest that construction began as far back as 20,000 B.C. A 2014 report suggest that the site might have been built sometime between the 2nd and 6th centuries AD.

Not far from today, a group of topographers was researching the nearby mountain until they saw something suspicious, the shape of the mountain below the ruins of gunung padang was particularly different from the geological shape of the area. This was further supported by a drifting spy satellite near the location. The mountain itself was in a shape of a perfect pyramid. Which, if this was confirmed, it maybe the worlds most oldest pyramid. This baffled some scientists and excited many archaeologists. Since then many was seen digging in the near site, searching for answers.

Recently some modern archaeologist using high-tech lazer scans suggest that they have found a hollow area inside the mountain. Archaeologists was positive that there were rooms with ventilation systems inside And there was more to the rabbit hole right beneath our feet. None of it was known by the original inhabitants of the nearby village. There was no mention or hint of it in the ruins and the national archives. This would explain how little we have known about the prehistoric era of the D.R.I.P..This maybe a new finding in the D.R.I.P.. we want your company to join us in our endeavor on possibly the worlds most amazing archaeological finding in history

VIII.XVIII.MMXIX
To my patrons in Alpes a Septentrionali Imperium,

My name is Dr. Francis Hill, and I had the privilege of leading a B.A.S. research team in conducting a Field Survey in your Western Alpes.

As you stated in your request for our services, the knowledge available to us about the Alpini Tribe is minimal. Thus, to gain some idea of where to start on this project, my team conducted a large scale satellite topographical survey of the area. Our findings revealed a large number of small hills in the area, varying in height but remarkably consistent in base width. These hills were our first, and eventually primary sites of investigation.

However, in order to investigate some of these sites, areas of forest surrounding the mounds had to be removed. In order to conserve your wonderful nation's natural beauty, B.A.S. staff will happily replant these trees, but be advised this will add to your final bill.

We determined that these, "hills" were in actuality man made burial mounds that can be dated to the period of time of the Alpini Tribe's rule. A cut out of the burial mound structure can be viewed here:

Unlike many other ancient culture's burial sites, the Alpini Mounds were never meant to be accessed again, or left by the soul of the deceased. This prevented any form of tomb raiding, as to do so would require the type of excavation our team engaged in. However, the loosely packed nature of the mound soil allowed for many sites to become significantly eroded, leaving little behind these millennial later. Of the 34 burial sites we identified, only 11 yielded any remains- although it is not inconceivable that some of these mounds were used for other purposes.

While most mounds had only one central cavity as shown above, one mound, the surprisingly the most most shallowly stepped one, had multiple, "rooms" inside.

Image


Marked in yellow are multiple tombs, each growing more opulent as they near the center. Green rooms contained weapons and gold, where as orange rooms contained altars presumably for sacrifices. Rooms marked in white were empty and without embellishment, presumably storage rooms during construction.

The large room marked in blue featured an altar larger than the rest, as well as the majority of the weapons in the mound. Behind the East wall is a opening containing a body that, we can say with 80% certainty given our understanding of the language and customs of the Alpini, that this is the tomb of Froid Gundowech, the king our team was tasked with finding.

In addition to the recovery of the King, our team unearthed a large number of bronze swords, axes, and other bronze and gold ornaments, as well as the remains of 15 other individuals. All of these have been transferred to the proper authorities in your nation.

In total, the cost of this Field Survey, one of the largest in our history, comes out to $2,430,689 - this amount has billed to your government.

It was an honor to make history uncovering history in your nation.
Sincerely,
Dr. Francis Hill,

To my patrons in The Democratic Republic of The Indonesian Peoples,

My name is Dr. Jeremy Müller, and I have had the honor of leading the dig in your nation. This site has been of interest to archaeologists the world over, so it was a great honor for our organization to be chosen for this project, and a person honor to be selected at the team leader.

As you are no doubt aware, the dating around the Gunung Padang has not been without controversy. To avoid becoming caught up in passionate arguments to soon, we began our research by thoroughly investigating the geographic history of the surrounding Cianjur area. From what ancient records of Earthquakes and forest fires tell us, the site appears to have had volcanic activity as recently 8,000 years ago, but with no major eruptions in the last 10,000 years.

We are incredibly thankful for the laser research your nation has already completed and provided to us. We believe that the hollow exterior and ventilation systems may be explained by the volcanic nature of the mountain, with hollow spaces being sills and central core and the ventilation system occurring naturally. Please see the picture below for an example diagram of the volcanic structure referenced.

However, that is not to say the site is was not important to the ancient people of the area. Among many artifacts that had been found previously, our team uncovered items that had not been seen before at the site- obsidian blades. These blades were carved out of the naturally occurring obsidian that would have been unique to this site- unseen elsewhere by the locals. It is likely that the site, as an active volcano and high point for the region would have held great significance. Traces of iron on some blades imply that these were used in ritual sacrifices.

Image


In total, 17 blades of this variety were found. These, in addition to the other articants uncovered, have been valued at $184,000, a value that has been charged to your account.

It has been a great privilege to lead this project, and I will cherish the memories of my time in your nation as long as I live.

Sincerely,
Dr. Jeremy Müller

TO: Dr. Shannon Kowalska
FROM: Ephram Schweiger, Ph.D., Director of Antiquities, Ximean Ministry of the Interior
SUBJ: Field survey of Alden Marsh, Ximea

MSG BEGINS:

Your discovery not only of the archaeological site but also of a sudden catastrophe corresponds well with our findings of other Lamprey Cult sites, where we have found evidence of precipitous societal collapse. The destruction of a major trade hub by earthquake fits into a multifactorial model as a cause of sudden and severe shortages of food and resources, and the relatively sudden conversion of forest and plains to wetlands would expose the population to previously unencountered arboviruses. Your work therefore helps us to answer long-standing questions about Ximean prehistory. We thank you and will gladly pay the balance of $322,400 for the revised fee.

MSG ENDS

Nation Name: Ko-oren
Location of Project with Nation: Gabsoren (south of Mayara, west of Aminey)

Please select an Operation Scale below:
  • Standard Dig- $15,000 [ ]
  • Large Dig- $30,000 [X]
  • Field Survey- $100,000+ [ ]
Please select between zero and three Fields of Study below:
  • Military Archaeology [ ]
  • Religious Archaeology [ ]
  • General Ethno-Archaeology [X]
  • Modern-Era Archaeology [ ]
  • Medieval Archaeology [ ]
  • Ancient-Era Archaeology [X]
  • Prehistoric Archaeology [ ]

Is there any information about your nation or this location our experts should be aware of? It is believed that the first large, permanently inhabited settlements arose in Gabsoren, near Aminey and Mayara, in the subdivision of Mayara, central Ko-oren. These communities likely spread north, towards the bay, where the modern day city of Mayara is, which has been the capital of Ko-oren for thousands of years. To confirm whether these ancient cities have actually existed, we would like the help of B.A.S. We expect the settlements to be from the third era, of very early agriculture, settlement, prior to the establishment of city states and organised communities.
