The Timbuctoo Treasures

Inspired by the quest for the legendary wealth of Timbuctoo, four golden treasures have been buried around the world, waiting for the foolhardy or the brave to retrieve them.


Concealed in the printed pages of Timbuctoo, and over the electronic pages of this web site, are all the clues needed to crack the codes, and to discover the GPS coordinates of the treasures.


The Timbuctoo Treasures are a series of unique life-size bronze sculptured heads from the depths of the West African desert, each one gilded in fabulous gold.


One treasure has been hidden in Europe, another in North America, a third in Africa, and a fourth in Australia.


Here’s the first clue: A whole number opens the lock.
