This time, I'm not alone! I have Ph.D. candidate Grace Rinehart Macrae, the Time Traveling Archaeologist, with me. We will learn more about the Cathars and one of their influential personalities, Esclarmonde of Foix. A woman who was very important among the Cathars and told to go back to the kitchen by the Dominican orders founder Saint Dominic. Esclarmonde did not to the saint's frustration. She also got known as the Fox due to her ability to avoid the Catholic inquisition.

Grace will also take us back to Rennes-le-château, where we will revisit and learn more about the buried treasure. Some additional information can be added to our documentation.
