Cavers Assist Construction Workers with Cavity Discovery

February 20, 2013 / France, Europe

Tharaux, France

French construction workers were recently assisted by cavers after they discovered a cavity.

The workers had been installing water pipes to connect the village of Tharaux in the south of France to the water supply at nearby Saint-Jean-de-Maruéjols when the entrance was uncovered.

Two cavers, Alain Borie and Jean-Pierre Durieux were called to the scene and were able to confirm that the small cave was not particularly interesting and contained no prehistoric artifacts.

It was then decided to close the entrance, while leaving the cave intact.
