One of the last regions you'll probably visit in Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Snotinghamscire is also one of the largest in terms of sheer square footage. Despite that, there are comparatively fewer artifacts here than in other regions. Not to be outdone, some of the artifacts in Snotinghamscire can be tricky to obtain and that's why we're here! And yes, you can stop laughing at the name "Snotinghamscire" now.

Artifact one is located by the sync point to the northwest of Ulkerthorpe Fort, and no, I don't know how to pronounce that. It's a Roman Artifact, found in ruins as they usually are, and it's next to a statue that's nestled in an alcove under an archway at the base of the tower that holds the sync point. Once you wander around the tower enough and find the statue, it's easy to spot the artifact.

Another Roman Artifact, this time we're headed to the west of Ulkerthorpe Fort, and across the Derwent River. If you're trying to get your money's worth, these two can easily be done together. This one is, of course, also in Roman ruins and is in the water in front of a partially sheltered statue. To get this, you'll need to jump in and dive down several stories before lunging to break a door and finally finding the artifact. This one isn't tough for the oxygen meter, but keep an eye on it just in case; Eivor's not a Submariner.

Now we'll head farther north in the region to just above Thyngowe, and while you're wondering who came up with all these weird names, you can tackle your first curse break of the region. The cursed talisman is located in the ruins of an old stone tower and the front door in is, alas, locked. Go around to the back of the tower and climb up and into the building, but know that you can only climb up the bit that isn't coated in icicles. Once you're inside, make your way to the front door, where the talisman is a sitting duck just inside the doorway.

Northwest of Minninglow you'll find another Curse to break. This time it's underground in a hill, and you'll have to head south to Minninglow itself to find the entrance which is hidden in a big rock formation. Once you're underground, you'll need to find the key to the locked door keeping you from the artifact. Here, you can either nose around the rest of the underground passageways or just use Odin Sight to snag it quickly. Once that's done, unlock the door and jump up on the ledge across from the Wealth chest to shoot the talisman and break the curse.

Treasure Hoard Maps might just be my favorite artifacts for each region, and the Snotinghamscire Hoard Map is located to the east of Hemthorpe, a lovely village on the river. This one is in an abandoned library in a circle of ruins. You'll need to break the floor in the ruins and head down, only to find the tunnel in front of your way is barred. Break the vases on the floor to reveal a passageway under the wall and slide on over. Grab the map, break the bar on the door, and just make sure to watch out for the vipers.

In Hemthorpe, south of the Stables on the map you'll find a Cosmetic Scheme. These show up on your map as "Flying Paper" and you'll have to follow it on a short obstacle course type of chase before grabbing it. If you take too long, it resets back to the start. This one is one of the rare few that starts at ground level and is outside the boathouse.

On Hemthorpe's north end you'll find the next piece of the Rigsogur Saga laying on a table in the long house. Walk in, find the right table, and grab it.

Last but not least, you'll need to head southwest from Hemthorpe to find your final artifact for this region. I say find, but what you'll find is a Curse that needs to be broken. This one is located in a mountain, and there's a trail that leads inside. You'll need to move the stone from the entrance though and take care to avoid the poison fumes, though these ones are actually avoidable. If you're having trouble locating exactly where the talisman you need to break is, use Odin Sight to help you out.
