Battlemap : Archaeological Dig

An interesting battlemap that just begs to have an adventure written around it. Quite timeless too, so whether you are running a fantasy, contemporary or future game there's scope for incorporating it.

The situation is quite straightforward, a dig is in progress unearthing a giant marble statue of a human or at least humanoid figure. What it is, what it portends, is up to you; as is how it was discovered in the first place. Will something dire take place if it is completely uncovered? What secrets are there to be revealed? Does the party want to dig it out or prevent it from seeing the light of day? Are they real archaelologists or mere treasure hunters seeking to make a profit from whatever they find?

There are a few tents for the archaeological team, platforms and ramps to gain access to the dig site and the giant statue itself.

Art is clear and crisp, although you will need to work out depths based on the elevation on the cover as the top-down view does not give you much to go on. There's a multi-page print-and-stick-together version and a massive single sheet version for virtual tabletop users.

Many games make use of archaeological discoveries so be it Cthulhu or pulp, something in the far future or something to puzzle your fantasy characters there is likely to be a use for this.
