Today’s challenge will test your skills of international collaboration and case studies.
Use the two pictures as a single stl.la link. It leads to different places, depending on what country you are in.
There are 8 parts. The first part is a clue for what to do with the rest, after you put them together. Remember the "case studies" clue.
The pictures are of smoke and a signal. stl.la/smokesignal leads to a page with the text "King of..." and another link that says "n of 8". The stl.la link leads to one of eight different Ancient Societies pages, depending on what country you are in. The destination of each of the "n of 8" links provides one part of the solution.
|n of 8 link||Country||Anc. Soc. Page||n of 8 Link||Solution|
|1 of 8||Other||u2XCP7AgGn||YouTube home page||(video id)|
|2 of 8||U.S.||2itkGjLkB6||Lowercase Letter 'v'||v|
|3 of 8||Japan||BKb3Ba7tdU||Q from Star Trek||Q|
|4 of 8||Germany||W6zR8AmAUQ||lowercase-letter-h||h|
|5 of 8||Italy||XYb2pbL9aw||qik_logo||qik|
|6 of 8||Brazil||Jjxpstn73A||W Hotels||W|
|7 of 8||Spain||eR2iXXLM8C||n: The Lonely n Song||n|
|8 of 8||U.K.||vXDMQqhZ82||What is a QCU?||QCU|
The first line gives us the clue that it's a YouTube video ID. Assembling the rest of the parts in the last column results in this video ID: vQhqikWnQCU The subject of the video is Franzl Lang, who is the "King of Yodelling". The solution is stl.la/yodelling.
