Attention Phase I Treasure Hunters…time to unlock those final treasures to qualify for the last Phase I prize drawing. I’d like to take a moment to welcome all new TH7 participants and remind everyone that if you are ever in a jam or just need a little nudge in the right direction, leave a comment on this blog and I’ll help you through the hunt!

The final deadline for Phase I (classroom and youth group) entries is approaching. All Phase I participants who successfully unlock the final treasures of Chapter 5, Chapter 6, and/or Chapter 7 by April 19, 2012, will be eligible to win a $1,000 gift certificate to purchase supplies! Congratulations to one of our latest winners, 4D Christian Academy (you’ll get to meet them soon on our winner’s page). Let’s help everyone progress through the hunt by looking at a question from Chapter 6, Peru:

11. The tomb of this ancient ruler was discovered in Chiclayo. It is the oldest and most significant tomb in South America, drawing comparisons with the tomb of Tutankhamun in Egypt.   DEAF RHINOS PLOT

Deaf rhinos are not plotting anything…as we discussed last week, those odd word combinations at the end of each clue actually contain all the letters you need for your answer. In this instance, we need four separate words, so let’s look at some additional clues:

** Peru’s renowned archaeologist, Dr. Walter Alva, made the discovery in 1987

** Huaqueros, or present day “tomb raiders,” brought attention to the area when they were caught with artifacts dated to the Moche era

** Many subjects were buried alongside this Mochican warrior priest to accompany him into the afterlife including his wife, a dog, and even a llama

** In 2003, a museum was opened in Lambayeque so that the Peruvian residents of Chiclayo may share their treasured ancestor with the world

This is another fascinating subject that can distract you for much longer than you anticipated, but are educational distractions really that bad?!? Using the additional hints should help you unearth the answer to this mysterious clue and bring you closer to solving Chapter 6. Since we only have a few more weeks of Phase I play, make sure to ask for guidance if you need it and remember that all Phase I participants can register as Phase II individual participants. Good Hunting!
