The Ancient One chapter begins after Jason and Salim escape from the upper tunnels and reach an elevator. Thinking that this is the only way to go, the unlikely couple decide to take the elevator deeper into the caverns.

The first secret can be found directly to the left after taking control of Jason. Turn left to find a table with a book on it. Examine the book and be sure to return to page two to get the secret.
Then, from the elevator, continue straight. On your right will be a cocoon. Examine the cocoon and look up to get the secret.
Keep moving forward until you enter the part of the area filled with stalagmites and stalactites. Stand on the left wall and you’ll come across a pocket watch. Examine it and open it to get the secret.
The last secret is right next to the pocket watch. Walk a little further and you’ll see research notes at the base of another cocoon. You’ll also get a cutscene when examining the notes.
