Norwich’s status as a city has been called into question. Dark rumours from the distant past have cast a shadow over the reputation of the Norman bishop who built its famous cathedral. Could he have been… a body snatcher?

Thankfully, the absent-minded city historian Professor Herbert Lozenge believes the truth can be found in time, but he’s stuck in London and needs your help to investigate the Normans’ dodgy dealings. To save Norwich’s well-earned reputation you must be his eyes on the ground, deciphering vital information that can only be found on the historic city’s streets!

The route includes some of Norwich's beautiful cobbled streets, please ensure that you are prepared for these uneven surfaces. Norwich Cathedral grounds currently close at dusk. Due to this, we advise playing REVOLTING EARLS & BODY SNATCHING BISHOPS during daylight hours and ensuring you allow plenty of time to enjoy and complete the game.
