Axel, you are very ingenious young man. Before all things, I enjoin you to preserve the most inviolable secrecy
Do you really think there are many people bold enough?
You understand? There are not a few in the scientific world who envy my success. And many would be ready to undertake this enterpise
Granted. I admit that Saknussemm may have written these lines but he hasn't accomplished such a journey. And may it not be that this old parchment is intended to mislead?
That is what we shall see!
Ah! But do let me exhaust all the possible objection against this document
But first, I want to ask. What are this Jokul, this Sneffels and this Scartaris, names which I have never heard before?
Oh I will explain it to you!
Look at this map. You see that volcanic island? All that volcanoes are called jokuls. And if you go to the west coast of Iceland you will see a mountain rising out of the sea, that is Sneffels.
Saknussemm observed that at the approach of the kalends of July, that is to say in the last days of June, one of the peaks called Scartaris flung it's shadow down to the mouth of that particular crater
And how about Scartaris? what have the kalends of July to do with it?
Oh God why he can answer all my question?
Oke so shall we go to explore the centre of the earth?
