Hunting Bees in Old Newgate is a carousel in The University, released with Mr Chimes' Grand Clearing-Out. It has a grind similar to Brawling with Dockers, and uses Bees Caught as a progress quality. Each point of these have an assumed value of 0.1 E , as well as a bonus of 2.5 E for turning them in, although this takes 2 actions in addition to gaining the progress qualities. Any surplus points of Bees Caught you may have are exchanged for a secondary reward. The activity focuses on Dangerous or Watchful depending on your Dagger or Flint. Watchful when Dagger or Flint is 0-50 and Dangerous when Dagger or Flint is above 50.

Airs of Old Newgate serves as a randomizer, similar to The Airs of London. It's not clear exactly how Dagger or Flint changes when doing the actions.
