|There has been far too long
a gap since I last reported. But the Archive project has been rolling – slowly – on. At the last count, the
number of scanned documents/pictures/recordings etc. has exceeded fifty
thousand … and some of the (re-)discoveries have been astounding, with
doubtless more to come. There is little which I can share with you at the moment, as the task of
sorting, identifying and cataloguing is both tedious and time-consuming.
Much is changing here in Saunière’s country and 2014 will, I
suspect, mark a new phase in the life of the village. It is a significant year in many respects and March 18 sees
the 700th anniversary of the burning of Jacques de Molay, last Grand
Master of the Knights Templar … a day which we should remember.
I shall be updating this entry shortly with details of my plans for 2014.
