Agent York our Time Traveller has now returned safely to the 21st Century. However he has made several leaps to different times and places. During this time he has been entrusted with artefacts so precious that he has gone to great lengths to hide them.
In order for you to discover the whereabouts of these precious items you will have to prove yourselves worthy by passing this test.
I have leaped to several places since we last met on a mission and you must journey with me now to those places. If you can discover what year I arrived at each location you will have proved your worth to go and find the “treasure”.
For my first leap I found myself in a building made of glass, iron and timber in Hyde Park. It is the first of May and Queen Victoria is opening the building.
If you discover what year this is it will start you on your quest. _ _ _ _
After Mount Vesuvius erupted two years earlier, the destination for this event was moved to London. 23 nations are represented but there was some controversy when the American flag bearer, Ralph Rose, refused to dip his flag to the royal box saying "This flag dips to no earthly king." The king in question was King Edward VII. So what year have I leaped to? _ _ _ _
I have leaped to this establishment in its founding year although it is not in the location that I know it to be today. It was moved to its present location in 1734. The date I am looking for is the year it was founded by William Paterson. He was a wealthy businessman who subscribed considerable funds to help William III fight a war against France In return for this help, he was granted a Royal Charter to establish this institution. What year am I in _ _ _ _
I have arrived just in time to witness the burial of one of the greatest of the warriors of all time. Originally named Temujin he was born near Lake Baikal in Russia I am in Mongolia at a secret location so secret that if I were discovered I would be killed. On the way to the burial site the funeral escort killed anyone and anything that crossed their path to conceal his burial place. _ _ _ _.
Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho, It's to my next leap I go. Suddenly I heard some old hag say “All alone, my pet” she passed me an apple saying, “Go on. Go on. Have a bite” Perhaps I should have looked in the mirror this morning. I am of course sitting watching the premier of the first full-length animated feature film every made. But what is the year _ _ _ _
If you have successfully completed your task you will be worthy of finding the treasure but first you must fill in the missing numbers.
You will need the last two digits of each date, the last two digits of answer A, will replace the two A’s the last two digits of answer B will replace the two B’s.
e.g. If the answer to A was 1765 and the answer to B was 1945 then the start of the co-ordinates would be N65.45…etc
