The start of something bigger?

Forgot to say in my last post, that with the letter I also found a piece of an old map - it's a bit crumbly and dirty but you can still read it.

From the grid in the corner it looks like it's one part of a bigger map. I've decided to copy this and distribute the pieces around the Uni - might be a good way of getting people to help me?

A strange letter from the past

Hi again!

Last week I was round at my Gran's house and discovered this strange letter while nosing around in the attic looking for some books for Uni (click on the thumbnail below to see a full-size version).

Very bizarre! I wonder what the secret machine is? I’m certainly not clever enough to solve this on my own and wondered if there was anyone out there who could help me?

When I asked my Gran she said that my great, great grandfather (or it is great-great-great) was some high-flying industrialist and it was him that bought her house in the first place. Don’t know what the letter means about a library – there is one in Gran's house but it’s massive and there must be thousands of books – I can’t look in every one!!!

Can anyone help?

Hello World!

Hi and welcome to my first ever blog post!

My name is Viola Procter and I'm a student in Manchester. I've started this blog because of a really strange thing that happened to me about a week ago that I've been puzzling over ever since.

I'm completely stuck so am using this blog as a way of getting people interested enough to help me. Please join in!

I'm not really sure what's going on - this might be something or nothing - but I'll tell you a bit more about what happened in my next post and fill you in on some of the details.
