Welcome to the new Unknown Artifact (or artefact) thread!
The old one reached an event horizon where the forums would no longer cope with it, so we have a lovely new thread for you with plenty of room.
The old thread is here - https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=141038
There's another thread on it here - https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=142106
There is also wiki - http://elite-dangerous.wikia.com/wiki/Unknown_Artefact
Now over to Arcanonn who will be your host...
yes it's spelled canonn here, as a nod to Arcanonn who started this...
