The Ancient Scrolls are thirteen scrolls that are needed for The Archaeologist quest. They are scattered all around Albion and they will be easier to find with the dog as he/she will lead you to the dig spot as soon as you enter the region. Scrolls 10-13 can still be found otherwise by using the spade from your inventory.

After collecting all the Ancient Scrolls, they eventually lead Belle Rennock to the Archon's Dream gem within a underground structure buried underneath Fairfax Gardens in the excavation site.

Each of the scrolls start with the same opening sentence "This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time." then continues with individual description (see below). All scrolls have the same base value and star rating. These will not appear in the inventory after they have been given to Belle.

Content of Notes Edit

Scroll 1 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time.............. Scroll 2 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. It contains three single words in some undecipherable language .
Scroll 3 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. A giant eye has been painted in the centre. Scroll 4 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. There is a child-like drawing of a man being zapped by lightning from a small cloud.
Scroll 5 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. This pages seems to have been watermarked with a large symbol of a creature of some kind. Possibly a giant duck Scroll 6 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. There's a rather rude picture drawn in the centre.
Scroll 7 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. It appears to be blank except for three dots in the top right corner. Scroll 8 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. Written on it is a recipe for a three bean casserole, except that the ingredients only call for the use of two types of beans.
Scroll 9 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. On it is a drawing of a mouse riding a lion, using a whip to make it go faster. Scroll 10 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. You can just make out the words "this is not a dream" written on it.
Scroll 11 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. It appears to contain the musical notation for a long-forgotten ballad. Scroll 12 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. A complicated set of symbols adorns the margins.
Scroll 13 This old parchment is somewhat worn by the passage of time. Written on it are the words "now just think of the number 42".

To see where these are located, see List of Fable II Archaeologist Scrolls.

Notes Edit

  •  Scroll 13 could be a possible nod to A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, where 42 is the answer to the (unknown) Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything, and Earth was the supercomputer created to find the question.
  • Scroll 10 could be a reference to an album by New Zealand band Dadamah. The cover artwork for the Album is multiple overlapping scribbles where only the words "This is not a Dream" are legible.
  • Scroll 9 could be referring to a specific individual or party rushing Lionhead Studios to finish Fable II.
  • The picture on Scroll 5 could possibly be the Sandgoose.
