GPR update!!!
This thing is right next to useless. One could spend a lifetime digging up all of the rocks and other miscellaneous subsurface crap that this thing chronicles.

Other than it being a neat new toy to tinker with, we are probably better off sticking to the basics and solve the puzzles as intended.

Bingo you need to recreate a casque

Well, I do have a lid to start with...
The fruit of a dig requested by erexere. The initial excitement was equal to the eventual let down.

I have small hands...
It measured just under 5" square and it was 1/8" thick, smaller than the lid in both dimensions. It was a heart stopper when it came out of the hole. It was pretty clear, pretty quickly that it wasn't what we had hoped it was.

Not an expert on GPR, but have some experience with it. With the proper antenna, helpful for ruling out possible dig sites but ‘positive finding’ does not confirm casque/object is necessarily buried in ground either. Knowing the specifics of the GPR antenna is critical in helping to locate an object 3-4 feet underground. I have been told that an 800 MHz antenna can detect objects as small as 2 inches in diameter and penetrate 3-4 feet in depth. Would seem ideal for this hunt assuming worst case scenario and the cask is cracked into pieces.

Is this not the exact issue with GPR? It would show everything that is 2 inches in diameter up to a 3-4 ft depth. People underestimate the amount of rock and other debris that is buried which will be detected.

The way I see it, GPR is a good option if you have a general idea of an area, the cooperation of the location, and time. Think Expedition Unknown in St. Augustine. If you have a fairly precise location, GPR will likely be an unnecessary step.

Sure will.
That seems like a logical solution. A square and a circle that are in close proximity to each other in the image most surely point directly to the very similarly situated Ether and White monuments in the Public Garden. That is, of course, after one applies the even more logical intersecting vectors from a google map.
So simple. I can’t imagine how no one has figured that out yet.
