Archaeologist Adamant Ironheart at Odesyus' Landing on Azuremyst Isle wants you to bring him 8 Ancient Relics.

Don't come back without some ancient relics.
My pappy would be proud! His boy strikes it big at the first set of night elf ruins he comes across... With your help, of course. Yes, don't worry, I won't leave you out of the discovery. You're a <race>, right? Right, sure... <race>. They'll learn all about you in Ironforge.
Upon completion of this quest you will gain:
"Precious and fragile things need special handling" is the first line of lyrics in the Depeche Mode song "Precious."
