The puzzle can be found during Chapter 8 “The Grave of Henry Avery”. After you and Sam have been scaling cliffs and fighting off bad guys, you’ll come to an old graveyard that contains many graves dating back to the middle ages. Among these tombstones will be Henry Avery’s grave. To find it, you need to ensure three bits of information all appear on the same grave.

The requirements for Henry Avery’s grave are these three pieces of info: a Skull and Crossbones, two crossed swords that are pointed down, and the dates 1659-1699. Search for a grave that has those three things on, and you’re golden.
