Waking The Memories
According to VG247, once the player has all the basic runes restored in their Shiekah Slate and visits Impa in Kakariko Village, she will give the player a task that will also trigger a main quest. In this quest, the player is tasked to locate all of the places that was visited by Link from the past in order to awaken his memories from a century ago.
Impa will then unlock 12 photos in the player's Shiekah Slate, and each photo points towards a different part of the world. When the player visits any of these places, it will trigger Link's memories and show a major event from a century ago. Each time this does happen the player would be getting information relative to the game.
