Cambridge. 1976. The sky is overcast with black, angry clouds.
A professor of Anthropology pertaining to the Middle East and Semitic religions is sitting alone in his office translating Latin into English. He had discovered the tablet and was in the process of translating it before he disappeared on the sixth of June. It was assumed he ran away to Africa as he'd begun to hear voices telling him he need to go below. The scholarly community deemed him schizophrenic and disregarded all his works.
He hadn't gone to Africa, he'd gone to hell.
