Our next region in Assassin's Creed Valhalla is Essexe. Located below East Anglia but above Cent on the East coast, it has a power level of 160. Now, to the artifacts!

We'll start off on the riverbank to the West of Wulfaswic, where we find our first Roman Artifact. It is, as always, among some Roman ruins. Use your Odin Sight to locate the precise placement of it and move the stones blocking it out of the way. Easy peasy!

Artifact 2 is a Curse break located Northwest of Wulfaswic, the same general area of Essexe as the first one. This one is pretty easy, all you have to do is climb on one of the poles and you'll be high enough to shoot the talisman and end the curse. For the love of Thor, don't eat any mushrooms you find lying around.

Now we move to the area of Colcestre, where our next Roman Artifact is located. Specifically, it's to the east of Colcestre in an overgrown area of ruins. And I mean really overgrown, I almost lost my horse in there. In a bit of a switch, you'll note the copious amounts of crows hanging around the ruins - the Roman Artifact is in one of their nests. Climb the tree and grab it, one more down!

In the southeast of Colcestre itself, you'll find the next Rigsogur Saga part. It's in the Ealdorman's house on the second floor, and you can just walk in and grab it from his desk.

On the east side of Colcestre you'll find a Roman Artifact on the roof of what I'll describe as a gazebo. It's built like a house but there are no doors on the building and it connects by walkway to the one next to it, so that sounds like a gazebo to me. The Roman Artifact is located under an overhang area on the roof and nothing is blocking it.

By the Trader in Colcestre you'll find a Cosmetic Scheme, which shows up on the map as Flying Paper. This little sucker is on the roof. For those who haven't read our previous guides, please note that all of the Flying Papers will lead you on an obstacle course and force you to chase them down, usually across the rooftops of the city, until you grab them at the end and claim your prize.

North Colcestre! We're covering all of the cardinal directions today, folks. There is another Roman Artifact, this one is in the ruins but it's hidden behind a fence and under a hay bale. Smash that fence, lug the hay bale out of the way and grab your artifact.

Now we go to Colcestre by the sync point. Here is another Cosmetic Scheme alias Flying Paper, and this chase starts on top of the overhang there.

After you grab all the Colcestre artifacts, journey north of the town to find another Curse to break. This time it's under a hill mound, which is potentially a burial site? Anyway, move the rock in the way, shoot the talisman and on to the next one!

While I can't pronounce the name Agnitum Tower, I can tell you it's where there is another Roman Artifact waiting for you to pick up. It's in the ruins by the sync point and you'll need to break the breakable floor with one of the exploding jars lying around very handily nearby. Inversely, you can use the Incendiary Powder Trap ability. Also nearby is a Mystery, so if you're going through and looking to complete those, you can get two for one.

North of Sancta Maria's Abbey is a Curse break for you, the last one in the region. The offending talisman is located up a tree, as so many of these are, but it's a little trickier to disarm than the one above. This time you'll need to climb the nearby trees in a circle pattern around the center of the curse and hop along from branch to branch until you get high enough to be able to shoot it down. Watch your balance!

I lied, we have one more artifact in Colcestre! This one is located in the northwest area of the town and is the oh so precious Essexe Treasure Hoard Map. This one you'll find in Sancta Helen's Church. To get the key you need to enter the room with the map you'll need to head to the opposite side of the church, move shelves and knock out a window. Yes, we too, feel sacrilegious doing these things, but hey, treasure's treasure.
