Raven’s time with the Youngs grows stranger as he learns that the bird he has seen repeatedly is called a merlin. Professor Young fills Raven in on the background of the archaeological site, and the possible effects of converting it into a dumping ground for nuclear waste. Raven tries to sway the editor of the local newspaper to acknowledging the danger, but gets nowhere with him. Raven is given an errand to run at the dig site, and experiences a series of powerful visions – this time including himself, wearing a crown and robes. But this time, he has something to show for his vision: a mark left on his forehead.
