### Geocache Description:

This Cache can't be approached directly, as you have to complete some missions first to obtain the correct coordinates. Thanks to 'Double Dutch' for the inspiration!

Task 1: Go to the start-coordinates. You will find some (tall) artifact. Read the sign and keep the part before the '-' in mind.

Task 2: Go to N 51° 51.865', E 6° 10.264'. Find the roman inscription (under the roof). Can you detect a number there?!!! Note: Inside the building is an interesting thing, if you're able to get in and have a look, you might like to do so...

Task 3: Now you need to search for the tombstone of Anne. Anne's Surname is like the word you found in Task 1 (quite like, as in former times they wrote the name slightly different). Hint: Anne died at the age of 85! Aehm, you won't find the tombstone directly at Task 2 of course, but we're sure, you know where to search for tombstones... ;-) Read the inscription and note the years of Anne's birth and death.

Task 4: Go to the following coordinates:
N 51° 5x.xxx' with x.xxx = Year of Anne's birth
E 6° 10.yyy' with yyy = 25 * [Number from Task 2]
This is a point with a great view. Go to the giant 'gate', stand in the middle and have a look around. Ok, enough fun, back to work:
- how tall is the gate? (ggg centimeters)
- find the artist between 'Brienen' and 'Rindern'. What is his number? (a)
- How old are the 'eyes'? (first digit => f)

Task 5: Now you know the cache location! It is at the coordinates
N 51° 5p.ppp' with p.ppp = f^(a+2*Last Digit of Year of Anne's death), "^" means "to the power of", an example: 5^3=125
E 6° 10.ggg'

Find the cache in a shallow pit between two trees and covered with wood and moss.

Have fun! Vinnie- & nici-
