Way back in 2002 Pegase [the magazine run by Michel Valet/Pierre Carnac reported the following:
"Since this summer, comments are going well. We are talking about the discovery of a tomb in a cane in Cardou.
Three northern researchers would be at the origin, MM. Gérard and Daniel Lagache, of Mareuil (Pas-de-Calais) and Thierry Plier, of Porcheville (78) Jean-Claude De Brou, on his website (which I recommend), provides on this subject the following clarifications:
"In fact the tomb, it is actually a cenotaph (commemorative funeral monument). It is in marble of the same vein as that of which we see found north of the village of Arques. Approximately, its weight would be 800 kg. When they found it the inventors noticed on its upper part the last fragments of a decomposing wooden cross. They also talked about the discovery of a scimitar (broad and curved oriental sword) ...? To tell the truth, the cave in question is not on the Cardou, but away from this mountain, not far from the mountain 'non loin du col d'Alpastre, au-dessus de Pébrière".
The three researchers could not enter it until after the stones that obstructed the entrance, which had been designed to conceal access. Messrs. Lagache and Plier assume that other burials are yet to be found in the area".
