I've seem to have missed the second part of the clue needed for the archive in the backyard and I can't go back. How do get the second part of the clue???

Unfortunately, after replaying to make sure about when you receive the archive pieces, and if it was possible to miss getting them, it is clear that there is definitely a glitch in this game for some people, as both pieces should be gotten automatically during gameplay progression and the only way someone would not have them both was if there was a glitch about this feature.

The first part is in chapter 3 in 'main street' in the broken window, and is just entitled clue part. After removing the plaque and reading through the book the part automatically goes into your inventory. You have to read through the book in order to reveal the box underneath where you place the medallion and the shell.

The second piece is also given to you automatically after you have played the mini game on the wall in the archivists house, where you place the map and the map parts and you receive at the end of it a scroll.
The game automatically goes into a cut scene of the archivist talking to you and you get the 2nd clue part entitled 'clue part' and a stone prism, then you have to leave the house via the back door because zombies are attacking.

I will point out that the first time I played the game, when I had completed the map mini game, there was a slight problem with the playing of the cut scene after, when the archivist talks to you, and I was kicked out of the game.
When I went back in, everything was fine, I entered right after the end of the cut scene and I had both the clue piece and the stone prism.
This was the only issue that I had throughout the entire game.

Because of this issue at this specific point in the gameplay i.e. when you are supposed to receive the second clue piece of the archive clue, I imagine that this is where there is some kind of glitch for some people that means that they are not receiving it in their inventory.

If you do not get both pieces where I have described, then you have experienced a glitch, it makes no difference that when you reach the backyard you can no longer go back to the previous locations where these items were received, because the glitch is with them not being put automatically into your inventory, not being unable to return.
Sorry guys
