AC Valhalla Treasure Hoard Map locations and solutions
You'll find the clue at the top of the ruins of Besuncen Tower, south of Ravensthorpe. Climb to the top of the tower and locate the statue there. The clue to this Treasure Hoard is on top of the statue.
Now check your inventory to find the note that reads:
Pagan devils have struck the heart of Grantebridgescire. Luckily, your brother saw them on the Great Ouse before their horde besieged the city walls of Grantebridge.
I'm old, so I cannot stray too far from our fishing hut near the town's southern gate. I will hide our riches in the well behind the house, at the foot of the bent tree. Do not worry, I may be clumsy, but I can still operate a well!
-Your Father, Echbert
According to Echbert's note, the treasure is located somewhere near the southern gate of Grantebridge, so fast travel there. Next, look to your right and you'll see a hut outside of the town's gate, and a bent tree is clearly visible just to the right of that.
Head to the base of the tree to find a covered well next to it. Break the wooden blanks and drop down to receive the Snakebite Scheme (Hull) for your longship.
You can find this located in a cave at Venonis, west of Ravensthorpe. There's a synchronisation point here so use that to cut down on travel time. Head to the river and locate the stone walkway, close to the water's edge. You're looking for a tunnel entrance.
Once located, head down the tunnel and turn right, then break some boxes to reveal a crawl space. Slide through and you'll find the clue to this Treasure Hoard on top of a tomb.
Check your inventory to find the map you just picked up, pictured below:
If you look at the map closely and compare it to the map of Ledecestrescire, you'll notice that the shape on the right is the same as the land enclosed by the river, with Venonis to the south. The map also indicates that the treasure is located just north of Venonis so head there now.
You'll soon spot the huge rock formation here, and you can find the treasure on the eastern side of it, close to a small tree. Loot the treasure to receive the Snakebite Scheme (Shields), also for your longship.
You'll find this clue located at Edmund's Hope, just east of Beodoricsworth. There's a synchronisation point here for easy access. Head inside the tower at ground level and look up to see a ladder. Shoot it down with an arrow and climb up to the next floor.
Find a note, and a key near a body here. Loot the key and read the note:
I made a Saxon beg for the sweet gift of death for this knowledge. There is a great treasure hidden near the church. The way is shut, but I have the key. Tell the jarl I will return with the greatest spoils.
Head back outside of the tower and you should notice a small building in front of you. Use the key to unlock it and collect the Treasure Hoard clue from the table inside.
Take a look at the map in your inventory and look for similarities on the East Anglia map. The location is east of Northwic towards the coast, so head there now. You'll find some roman ruins and a few wild boars when you get there.
The treasure is located in the circular area, in front of the three statues. Loot it to receive the Snakebite Scheme (Tailpiece) for your longship.
This clue is located inside a cave at Eaton Barn, southwest of Buckingham. You'll need to use the explosive jars nearby to break down the blockage to the entrance. Head through the tunnel until you reach a large cavern containing a statue.
Look to the left of the statue to find a moveable rock: Shift this so you can access the room beyond. The clue is waiting for you on the table inside. Check your inventory to find that the note reads:
In the southern heaths of Oxenefordscire, there is a vast pasture. The livestock act as my protector. They hum and haw away the evil demons. Find the peculiar tree casting its shadow on the small ruin. You can find me where the waters used to run. The lost shimmer of its wavelets still shines within me.
If you open your map and look to the south of Oxenefordscire, you'll see a large open area. The easiest way to find the correct location is to head for the middle of that space, and look out for the biggest tree you can find. There should be plenty of sheep and cows around, too.
You'll find the ruins of an old cottage next to the correct tree, along with a covered well. Use an arrow to break the wood covering the well, and drop down to receive the Snakebite Scheme (Figurehead) for your longship.
This map is located in the southern part of Oxenefordscire, rather than the town of Lunden itself. Look to the northern edge of the village of Hammeham to find a well that has been boarded over. Break the cover and drop down to retrieve the Lunden Hoard map here.
The map shows a series of arches, and there are plenty of roman ruins that fit that image in the immediate area. The name of the map is misleading—instead of heading south towards Lunden, turn and head for the arches you can just make out to the northeast. Follow it north until you reach the end.
Once there, look for the ruins of a small building, again, just to the north. Zooming in on your map might help as the position of the wall of arches becomes obvious. Loot the treasure on the grass inside of the ruins to receive the Speki Symbol Scheme (Head) tattoo.
This map is located at the synchronisation point at Hill Gate Remnants, just southwest of Wenlocan Abbey. Fast travel here, and do a leap of faith to reach ground level. Make your way inside the tower and look for the net of rubble suspended beneath a platform inside. Use an arrow to drop it.
Now head down into the hole made by the rubble, and use the crawl space at the bottom to find a dark and dusty library. You'll find the map on a table directly ahead of where you entered.
The map points towards Caustow Castle, located in the southwest corner of Sciropescire. And more specifically, to the lake nearby. Head to the larger of the two lakes, and the one that resembles the shape in the image of the map the most.
Once here, dive into the lake and look around for the telltale white glow. Loot the treasure to receive the Vidarr Scheme (Head) tattoo.
This map is located at the Dover Pharoahs. It's on the south coast, just east of Folcanstan. Once you're there, climb the tower to reach the highest point, and the map can be found perched on top of a small wooden shelf.
The map shows a drawing of a snake. If you open your own map and zoom in on Cent, you'll notice the shape of a serpent to the west of Folcanstan. The clue points to the head of the snake, so head to the most northerly part.
The treasure might be a little difficult to spot at first because of all the chalk. It's actually located next to a pile of small rocks on the snake's right eye. Be careful as real snakes dotted around here too. Loot the treasure to receive the Speki Symbol Scheme (Back) tattoo.
This clue is located inside Sancta Helena's Church in the northwest corner of Colcestre. Getting to this one can be a little tricky, depending on your gear level. Use your Odin's Sight to locate the key inside the church and look for a moveable bookshelf close by—handily located next to some blue flowers in which you can hide.
Move the shelf and shoot out the stained glass window behind it, then collect the key from the table inside. Next, make your way inside the church and unlock the door to the tower. Use the moveable shelves here to reach the ladder above, and shoot down the next ladder to continue climbing. You'll find the clue at the very top, beneath a small window. It reads:
To the south of Essexe, your eyes must train themselves away from the tower built by Roman giants, through the green fur of nature, a sacred marking made by three skins of trees in a circle of plants.
Head to the river located on the southern border of Essexe, west of Wulfaswic. This one is fairly hard to spot, but look out for a sizable ruin close to the river.
You should see three trees just to the right of it, and the treasure is located in the middle of a circle of pink flowers. Loot the item to receive the Huginn Call Scheme (Hull) for your longship.
This map is found in the ruined village of Whisby, located on the east side of the small lake to the south east of the synchronisation point. You'll need to find the key at the edge of the water—use your Odin's Sight to pinpoint it—but watch out for guards nearby.
The clue is located in the building closest to the lake. Unlock the door and find the clue on a small table inside. It reads:
To the east of Lincolnscire, in Skegi's Beard, there lies a stretch of coast detached by the angry sea. From my guard tower wherein lies my dearest properties, I watch over this land, guarding against the invasion of the barbarians who never cease. This hoard possesses the last relics of the Kingdom of Lindsey, and I forever shall defend it.
Look for a large lake on the eastern coast of Lincolnscire. Skegi's Beard is the name of the large encampment here and it is hostile, but if you look towards the northern edge, you'll see a ruined tower.
You don't need to enter the encampment to reach it, so skirt around to get there. The treasure is located at the top of the tower. Loot it to receive the Speki Symbol Scheme (Front) tattoo.
This map is located in a house on the southern edge of Crawleah. The town is a distrust area and the door at the back of the house is barred. You shouldn't have any problem walking through the front door, however, as long as you keep an eye out for the big guard that likes to patrol.
Once inside, you can find the map on a table.
It's really not obvious from the sketch, but it depicts a waterfall and a lake. If you head south from Crawleah, you'll find a series of shallow lakes and a small waterfall. The map shows the treasure is at the top of this, so climb onto the rocks here to locate the glowing treasure.
It can be pretty difficult to spot because of all the flowers. Look at the small island of flowers set back from the top of the waterfall. Loot the treasure to receive the Huginn Call Scheme (Back) tattoo.
Suthsexe (Monk's Lair)
This clue is located close to the western border of Suthsexe, almost directly west of Lunden. You're looking for a small house just off the main road here. The clue is found inside, on a low table in the corner.
The clue reads:
In the northern and western corner of Suthsexe, under the oldest tree in Chertsey Abbey lies my glory-wealth.
A memorial stone is split, as lightning struck this hoard once it was buried there to illuminate it with God's light.
Following the note, Chertsey Abbey is located just to the north—the northwestern corner of Suthsexe—so head there and look for an old tree. It's easy to spot as it's the largest tree in the area. The 'split' gravestone is tiny though, so just look for the white loot glow in the grass around the trunk of the tree.
Pick this up to receive the Cross Face Scheme (Head) tattoo.
Suthsexe (Witch's House)
This map is located in another house, this time, further south. The Witch's House can be found just west of Guildford. The map is on a shelf inside, but you'll need to shoot a boarded up crawlspace to enter—it's on the opposite side of the house to the door.
Be careful when you go in to retrieve it as the house is full of poison. Equipping your torch once you're inside should dispel it.
The map shows a picture of a man, and if you've done any exploring in Suthsexe, you'll may have noticed the chalk figure over on the eastern side of the region. It's south of Croindene and you can just make it out if you zoom in on the map.
The treasure is located under the chalk figure's right arm. Loot it to receive the Huginn Call Scheme (Front) tattoo.

Wincestre Seminary Treasure Hoard solution

Once you've found it, look in the direction that the horse's tail is pointing, and you'll see an oddly-shaped hill. The treasure is sat inside a small stone circle there. Loot it to receive the Seer Scheme (Figurehead) for your longship.
This map is located on the east side of the town and is in a heavily guarded building. Your best bet is to climb the town wall, watching out for guards that are patrolling here. The building you're looking for has one guard posted at the door nearest the wall. Take him out then enter the building and climb onto the second floor.
Look for a door covered with planks and break through this to find the map. You can leave by the door on this floor, which takes you out onto the roof near the wall.

It's at the end where the trees hang over, so use your Odin's Sight if you're having difficulty locating it. Once that's taken care of drop down and enter the hole you've just created. The map is on a shelf here. It reads:
In the south and western corner of Hamtunscire, lost in Wishtman's Wood, I ran from the devil with my riches. Fatigued like a hunting hound, the darkness of the trees sending shivers in my spine, an endless fog clouding my vision, a tree of holy red, placed by the Holy Spirit and marked with the Blood of Christ: here. I paid my divine commissions, I gave my wealth to the ancient reliquary, and the Lord pardoned my fees.

If you open your map, you'll see that the drawing depicts the body of water just south of you. The treasure is located just east and across the river of where your current location.
You'll find a fairly intact building here so go in the front door and pass through into the courtyard behind. Look for the square pond in front of you and you'll find the treasure in the middle. Loot this to receive the Seer Scheme (Sail) for your longship.
This clue can be found just northeast of Hemthorpe, in the northern region of Snotinghamscire. The roman ruins here are called The Abandoned Library and you should find a breakable wooden covering on the floor. Use an arrow to get rid of them and head down the tunnel.
