Picture by picture
11.01 - Warning signs
Two warning signs in the big generator room.
- "No entry to unauthorised personnel" and
- "No smoking or naked flames"
11.02 - Generator
Because the level is quite dark there are a lot of generators. These generators provide power to the lights. The branch is Generac Power Systems and the model is G1000.
11.03 - Desktop computer
At the working place of the archaeological dig team there is a pc. If you look close to the pc you see a version of Outlook. It is Outlook 2000 - a long time ago - but suitable for that time in 2001-2003.
11.04 - Floor plan
Map making of the object you want to dig is a neat plan. It has been used in archaeology and in other branches. It certainly doesn't look like the puzzle Lara must solve. Could it be the Louvre?
11.05 - Dig machine
Lara is standing for a dig machine. The original cannot be found.
11.06 - Puzzle
Lara is standing for the puzzle. No spoiler alert for those who want to play the game. It has everything to do with the symbols on the puzzle. Most of them look like Alchemical symbols and some don't.
