Excavations at Fontainebleau

Archeological excavations continue in the Henri IV courtyard of the Château de Fontainebleau. Two meters below the surface, archeologists found a hairpin belonging to Catherine de Médicis. Details of the find will be shared in Monday's edition of La République; in today's edition of the paper, you can examine photographs from the site.

This is exciting. I wonder how they know who the hairpin belonged to though.
