HERE you can see reproduction of part of an article which was published in one of the earliest Journal of the Rennes Alchemist's issues. Jean Genibrel and i had corresponded briefly when Eisenman was carrying out some work at Rennes-le-Chateau. The work at Rennes, i believe, was in fact being carried out as a direct result of knowledge that Genibrel held [from prior family knowledge] regarding something buried under the Tour Magdala by Sauniere himself. Much later there was a TV programme which referred to these excavations & which we can see HERE [i confess i did find it a little suspicious].
A newspaper article from 1967 reported the following:
The image above is from this website.
.... that "The workers also talked. When digging the foundations of the Tour Magdala, they say, [the workers, that] Saunière came to join them, carrying in his coat, a crate of wood about the "size of a baby." With his own hands, he buried the box in an excavation, and waited as cement [was] poured over ..."
Canadian and US scientists went to the village in the Aude in search of the mysterious treasure that attracts 100,000 curious people yearly. The story begins as an adventure - Jean-François Lhuilier, Mayor of Rennes-le-Château, receives a letter from one Jean-Louis Genibrel, an American citizen residing in Long Beach, California which here are the basics:
"I know that at the beginning of the construction of the Magdala tower in Rennes-le-Château (... my grandfather of a cousin (of my aunt) was the site manager, and helped Abbe Berenger Sauniere to bury at least one box and other objects under the foundation the tower, just under the corner stone. "
Mr. Génibrel confirmed the words of his cousin, and the name of his grandfather as Louis BOUSQUET. The death certificate of Abbé Saunière, provides additional information on the activities of Mr. Louis Bousquet:
"The twenty-third day of January, one thousand nine hundred and seventeen, at eleven in the morning on the Declaration Pierre Captier, fifty-nine, farmer, resident in this county, neighbour of the victim, and Louis Bousquet, forty-five years, stonecutter, living in this county, friend of the deceased, the death certificate having Read over, then both signed with me, Victor Rivière, maire de Rennes-le-Château"
Signé: Rivière, Captier, Bousquet
