One of your first major quests outside of Sainte-Anne in skull and bones take place with the Sea People. This clan is an ally of Scurlock’s and you’re sent to them to deliver some weapon caches. Once you get to their settlement, though, you can take on another quest, which is to find and recover the lost Sea People Relic.
In order to recover the relic, you need to follow a treasure map. This treasure map gives you a rough location of where to find the relic, but the rest is up to you. If you want to know where to find the Sea People Relic and solve the treasure map in Skull and Bones, check out the guide below.
Following the Sea People Relic treasure map
After you accept the quest to find the Sea People Relic, called “Relics of the Past,” make sure you track it in your quest log. Once this is done, you can press RT/R2/X to bring up your quest log in-game. Here, you’re able to view a brief description of your objective as well as view the treasure map, which is seen below:
As you can read from the text, you need to travel to Fort Louis on the Tenina Coast to find the buried treasure left behind by the Sea People. This settlement is located at the very bottom of your map on the southern tip of the Tenina Coast. You’ll have to travel southeast from Sainte-Anne, past Learnt Men’s Hill, to reach Fort Louis, which is the southernmost island on the map.
After arriving at Fort Louis, you can disembark once you reach the small inlet located on the south side of the island. Here, you can talk to the Fara clan, the vicious rivals of the Sea People, as well as other pirates.
As soon as you step off your boat, go straight and then turn left at the stone wall. You should see some wooden planks in the sand and be directly in front of a wooden structure. At this location, you’ll see a glowing orange light coming out of the sand. Go here and you’ll get a prompt to “Dig Up Item,” which you can do without needing a separate tool. This is the buried treasure location on the map, rewarding you with the Sea People Relic after your character has finished digging.
With the relic in your possession, you need to get back on your ship and make your way north to a settlement called Palisade Bay. This location is northwest of Sainte-Anne and in The Giant’s Leap region of the map. Here, you can interact with the settlement while still on your ship (simply head toward the shoreline near the settlement) and give them the Sea People Relic, which completes the Relics of the Past quest in Skull and Bones.
