Time Line       March 1972 First and second viewing of  ‘Temple Treasure’, Chronicle Programme on  BBC-2.

   July 1972 Aerial photography  interpretation suggests possible treasure site north of Rennes-le-Château  due to identifying an area on the Poussin painting ‘Les Bergers d’Arcadie’ that closely  mimics the landscape in the vicinity.

   12th October 1973 Temple Treasure Part II filming. Bill Kersey discovers further link with the Poussin painting after clearing bushes at site. No tools or excavation team on site so archaeological dig postponed indefinitely.  Possibly  Visigothic Sacred Treasure site designed to contain the the Temple treasure from sacked Jerusalem pillaged from Rome.

   June 1984 Breakthrough on cipher in Poussin and Teniers paintings enabled a partial understanding of the cipher.

   June 2004 Research results to that time were published in ‘Still Spins the Spider of Rennes-le-Château’.

Research is ongoing in several areas of particular interest as follows:

    The Ancient Cipher, its history, ancient origins, Judaism  Early Christianity. Greco-Roman applications in Pompeii, Visigothic applications, 17th Century , Templar Cross and modern day religious sacred use.  Research is active on the cipher usage on the terrain about 500AD.

   April 2006 Research conducted in co-operation with Ben Hammott and Sandy Hamblett led to further discoveries in the area.  A GPR site survey using RAMAC 250 Mhz. gave confirmation but due to the rugged terrain and lack of skill the survey will be repeated later using two different machines conducted by an expert yielding results fit for publication.

    The most significant discovery being that a document  unearthed by Ben Hammott’s team confirmed that the location of one hoard  marked by the same two markers and cipher identically as already defined in ‘Still Spins the Spider...’. The author of the document is most likely to have been the Priest Bérenger Saunière.  Moreover, he states the name by which he knew the cipher and names the treasure as the ‘Royal Treasure’ and so it is not the ‘Sacred Treasure’ of the Jerusalem Temple.

Concurrent cipher exploration has led to work on another hoard. Possibly this is the Sacred or Temple Treasure.  

   October 2007 Research in the field continued on analysing the methodology the ancients employed in utilising the cipher on the Royal Treasure.  Further field work has yielded positive results also applicable on the Sacred Treasure site.

   19th September 2008 First visit to site of Sacred Treasure of the Visigoths in pouring rain.  External site investigation confirms location exactly where ancient cipher alignments specify.  Has the site been pillaged in the past?  Who knows?

   14th August 2009 Having received a gracious letter of approval from the Maire of Rennes-le-Château to proceed with the first excavation, the formal application to the DRAC is now well under way . The DRAC have proposed a date in 2010 on satisfactory completion of their  ‘DOSSIER DE DEMANDE D’OPERATION ARCHAEOLOGIQUE .  Little chance of success!

   30th August 2009 Verification of  Saunière’s use of  ‘Quadrivium’ in coded document when he names the cipher .  This is due to the discovery  of musical annotations linked to the cipher key  at Stirling Castle. (see Music page.)

  1st June 2011   Found that Saunière also used the ‘Quadrivium’ in the layout of the restored architectural design of the Magdalene Church and indeed the system used by the Visigoths through the  whole area  to define the locations of the  treasures they buried there.

1st March 2013  ’Keys of Antiquity…’ book reveals Saunière has left the Visigoth trail for us to follow with much besides.

1st December 2013  ’Keys of Antiquity…’ book reveals  so much that there will be a separate website

This will elaborate on the long-term story which has culminated in the saga at Rennes-le-Château.

10 th April 2014  This validity of the ancient document in which Jesus Christ names Mary Magdalene as His Wife has been checked and has been found to be genuine.  This is in support of the artefacts comprising, amongst other artefacts,  such as a widow’s mite, the wedding cup and anointing jar from the wedding of Jesus Christ to Mary Magdalene.  These were  excavated by the Ben Hammott team including Bill Kersey.  All artefacts have been checked by the relevant experts.

30 th June 2015  Established that Christ’s Widow Mary Magdalene settled in Languedoc having given birth.  This lineage later become part of the Meovingian  Dynasty.   Only one direct line so far verified as confirmed by biblical scripture.
