Engineer. Most probably Henri Corneille Marie Ghislain Siret (° Namur, 26.7.1857; + Malaise, 22.10.1933) or his brother Louis (° Sint-Niklaas, 26.8.1860; + Herrerías [ES], 7.6.1934), both graduates of the "Ecole des Mines" at the University of Louvain and recorded as engineers in Spain in 1887. Henri Siret, who had a distinguished career, received the Martorell prize in 1887 awarded by the city of Barcelona for his study on prehistoric metalworking in south-eastern Spain pursuant to his discovery, together with his brother, of vestiges of the Argar civilisation. On his return to Belgium, Henri donated his collection to the "Musée du Cinquantenaire" in Brussels. A corresponding member of the "Académie d’archéologie de Belgique", he gave a slide show featuring views of southern Spain to the "Congrès de la Fédération archéologique et historique de Belgique", held in Charleroi in August 1888. Henri Siret was subsequently the director of "La Revue Générale" and an Officer of the Order of Leopold.
