Where the Heck Is This?
Our apologies, but “Where The Heck Is That” is temporarily unavailable. We hope to resume this feature in the not too distant future.”

- Where the heck is it? – January 2019
For the very first time, the CyberScribe is using a color photo. The head, Identified as that of the pharaoh Ramesses IV by its discoverer, Egyptologist, Dr. Abernathy Pontefract. Beguiled by the intense color, Pontefract spent nearly a decade trying to determine the nature of the wonderful blue paint, but with no success. One day a sympathetic Egyptologist whispered the answer into his ear, and Pontefract ran off screaming and was never seen again.
If you think that the CyberScribe might be in. error:
- Who do you think is the Pharaoh represented by this head?
- What is the identity of this fabulous “blue paint?”
- Bonus Question: What museum displays this treasure?
If you think you have the solutions to these questions, come to the January meeting with your answers and perhaps you will win a prize!
This is Where the Heck was actually in : solutions
