  • The excavations were suspended due to lack of appropriate equipment

Seven period pieces, strongly suspected of belonging to the legendary treasure of Olivier Levasseur, better known under the name of La Buse, were discovered during excavations launched on the coast of Albion, a little over one week. This find immediately aroused renewed enthusiasm among researchers and hikers who alerted the authorities, reigniting speculation and hopes of getting their hands on the entire treasure of this famous 18th century pirate. The parts, it is understood, were found in a metal box about two meters deep.

This discovery, which took place during the second day of excavations in the Albion region, marks a significant step in the quest for the treasure of La Buse. The latter has fascinated historians and treasure hunters for decades.

One of the hikers forming the group of 7 friends who came across a rock bearing pirate signs, spoke on condition of anonymity to Le Dimanche/L'Hebdo. “The color of the seven pieces that were found during the excavations varies between silver and bronze.

The documents were then sealed by the authorities concerned. We weren’t even allowed to take a photo,” they explain. Rumors are circulating that these pieces date back to the 13th century.

Our speaker points out that the excavation work was, however, suspended due to lack of equipment. “The devices we have are not adequate for the nature of this specific drilling work. We need to dig deeper, and with specialized equipment. This is why the work was suspended. »

Archaeologist George Abungu, Associate Professor of Heritage Studies, is in charge of the excavation work. The latter, it is explained, will have to submit a detailed report concerning this find to the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) and to UNESCO. “The seven pieces found during the excavations confirm once again that the La Buse treasure is indeed planted on the site. We are highly motivated. We expect the drilling work to resume as soon as possible,” underlines the hiker.

They expect much more than silver coins. “We expect to get our hands on La Buse's loot, namely the gold and diamonds that are in the trunk. » The site where the drilling work was started is under heavy police surveillance.
