The Story Thus Far

Hamilton Public Library’s Local History & Archives recently received a donation of a battered old journal, written by a Victorian gentleman, Dr. Tiberius Hess. He writes of life in Hamilton from 1854-60. He also describes a time machine he built, governed by strange nautilus gears and powered by electricity and steam. Hess writes that he used the device to travel to present day Hamilton where he hid a set of the gears. He also crafted a set of six clue sets that are part of the journal; the cryptic clues reveal where he hid the gears. We think we’ve determined how Hess intends the clues to be unravelled. If you solve them and deduce the gears’ location, you could win a remarkable prize. More on that soon.

Read more on what we’ve determined about the clues thus far.
