When Wayne was a young kid, he always loved adventure stories. So when he discovered a small, dark hole in the ground one day, he knew it was the perfect spot to explore. Inside he found a portal that led to a world of magic and adventure. He was able to make friends with a wizard named Merlin, and together they explored the wondrous world beyond. Wayne never forgot his amazing journey, and when he grew up and started his own journey as a professional archaeologist, he always made time to visit Merlin’s world on occasion.
