Geocache Description:

This cache is NOT at the above listed coordinates. If you do find a cache at those coordinates, it is probably an archived one that went missing (let me know!). You must sift through a little history in order to figure out the real coordinates of this cache.

  • Pope Gregory IX establishes the papal Inquisition, dispatching Dominican friars to southern France to investigate heresy.
  • Leonardo da Vinci begins painting the Mona Lisa.
  • Hugues de Payens founds the Order of Knights Templar.
  • Construction begins on the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris.
  • Portuguese explorer Bartholomeu Dias becomes the first European to round the Cape of Good Hope, opening up a sea route to India.
  • Christopher Columbus makes four voyages to America.
  • Louis VI King of France and Adelaide of Maurienne are married.
  • Louis VII, future King of France, is born.
  • Construction of London Bridge begins.
  • Prince William, heir to the English throne, drowns in the wreck of "White Ship".
  • England invades and defeats France at the Battle of Agincourt, establishing England as the dominant European power.
  • Michelangelo begins painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
  • Owen Glendower proclaims himself Prince of Wales and begins a revolution.
  • Joan of Arc is burned at the stake.
  • The Treaty of Troyes is signed in an attempt to end the Hundred Years' War.

The cache would rate one-star of difficulty if hidden as a Traditional. In fact, it is not camouflaged, though it is covered by some rocks, and probably can be seen by pedestrians, but I don't believe there are many of those here.
