Digging up the Past is an achievement in Halo 4. It is awarded when the player finds and accesses John-117's record during the level Dawn. The achievement is worth 20 Gamerpoints. It is represented by the Office of Naval Intelligence emblem.[1]


The location of the terminal is located right under the cryo bay. In the beginning of the level, instead of heading straight into the room where there's a hologram of the frigate, turn left and look for a staircase that leads to the lower floor. At the far end of the room, there is the terminal that contains John-117's service record.


The service record incorrectly labels the UNSC Pillar of Autumn as a frigate. In actuality, it was a Halcyon-class cruiser.
