Benjamin Brewis

From the official books website:

"Three years in the making, the aim of this project is to reconnect people with a sense of discovery and the beauty of the natural world on their doorstep. The added bonus is the prospect of finding the keys to real treasure by using online exploration, puzzle solving skills and a little imagination."

"The poetic story will take you away to a world of myth, ancient legend and history in a real-world setting. The Banburyshire countryside includes places that helped inspire Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials – a magical place rich with historic stories. On the way to the gold you’ll learn more about this ancient British/Roman area between Banbury, Oxford, Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon and the Cotswolds."

"The answers can be found using the clues in the book combined with online research and maps. Once we are safely out of lockdown, it will be the perfect excuse to get outdoors and learn about history, people and places at the same time – and although travelling isn’t necessary to claim the prize, it could help in your quest once it is safe to do so. The treasure will wait patiently."
