    You need to collect the 17 items from the Aztect Artifacts page in the Museum. 5 of the items are the plate that you need to collect for the first quest. The rest are randomly spread throughout the level (though many are found deeper in the ground).

    The achievement will unlock as soon as you pick up the final item. I unlocked this during the campaign play of the Aztec level, collecting all the items in one play through. If for some reason you miss one in campaign play, start a new game in Freeplay mode since your digger is fully upgraded from the beginning and you can drive deep into the map quicker to find your missing item.

    BongoThanks for the depths, they were spot on. Anyways, the 3rd row 3rd left is at 1110 On the right side I believe.

    After playing through the Amazonian Level several times pre-patch and post-patch, I have found out that for some reason 1 artifact was always missing for me in this level if I played it during the campaign. Therefore, I went into Freeplay and was able to dig away until I found the last item.
    Post patch, I have found out that you can play all of the levels in Freeplay and get all of the colletction achievements for each level.
    Therefore, go into the Amazonian Level (Freeplay) and keep digging and collecting until you get all of the artifacts (if you have completed the campaign achievement for this level it should only be 1 or 2 artifacts left in your museum under Aztec items if they were not all obtainable in your campaign level).
