Geocache Description:

Templiers en Champagne / Templars in Champagne


 

 

Aux environs de 113O Hugues de Payns créa la commanderie de la Neuville au Temple entre la Vesle et l’actuelle départementale qui relie St Etienne et Dampierre. C’est à cette époque que les trois villages, St Etienne, Dampierre et St Hilaire prirent la dénomination « au Temple » Les templiers étaient maîtres de la contrée et percevaient les dîmes sur plus de cent villages de Champagne.

Le sol des trois villages est truffé de souterrains dont certains servirent d’abri pendant la première guerre mondiale.
C’est d’ailleurs dans l’un d’eux que je découvris il y a peu, sous une dalle,  roulé dans un tube de plomb, un bout de parchemin très abimé dont le contenu me laissa fort perplexe.
C’est pourquoi je vous le soumets. Pourrait-il mener au fameux trésor du temple ?
Ce texte serait-il la clé de l’énigme ?
Peut-être la spécialiste incontestée des templiers, notre chère Miss Vicky P., pourra-t-elle nous aidez à faire la lumière sur ce document ?
En tout cas, une chose est sûre, les spécialistes situent tous le trésor à :
 
N 49°02.X et E 004°24.0Y
Bonne chance et bonne Chasse.
 


Around 1130, Hugues de Payns created a new commander’s residence in La Neuville au Temple between the river Vesle and the actual country road from St Etienne to Dampierre. In the same time, the three villages, St Etienne, Dampierre and St Hilaire added to their name “au Temple”. Templars were the masters of more than a hundred villages in Champagne and collected tithe in every one of them.
Underground of these villages is riddled by tunnels. In some of them people were still taken shelter from bombing during WW1.
Exploring one of these tunnels, I found a small and spoilt parchment under a paving stone in a short lead pipe. What was writing on let me really puzzled and that is why I ask for your help.
Could it be a hint to find the fabulous Templars treasure?
Perhaps our world-famous specialist, Miss Vicky P. will be able to help us to decrypt it.
In any case, specialists agree on a place situated near :
 
N 49°02.X et E 004°24.0Y
Good luck and nice hunt
