Geocache Description:


La grotte des Baumelles


Cette multi t’emmènera en deux étapes (Coordonnées finales dans la première boite) sur un joyaux vieux de plus de 5000 ans. Cette cavité est une grotte citerne, c’est-à-dire qu’elle servait de réservoir d’eau, ressource précieuse sur le Causse.

Profonde de quelques 80 mètres, elle était murée par un menhir enterré exposé au musée du Vigan. Lors de sa fouille, ont été découverts des ossements, poteries, outils, ainsi que des traces rupestres.

Je ne suis pas assez mince pour me faufiler dans l’étroiture exiguë qui conduit à la cavité principale. De toute façon, c’est très bien ainsi car ces vestiges anciens doivent être préservés.

Un grand merci à Doris qui a en redécouvert l’entrée et fourni les coordonnées.

This multi will take you in two stages (Final coordinates in the first box) on a jewel that is more than 5000 years old. This cavity is a cistern cave, that is to say that it served as a reservoir of water, a precious resource on the Causse.

Deep of some 80 meters, it was walled by a buried menhir exposed to the museum of ‘Le Vigan’. During his search, were discovered bones, pottery, tools, as well as painting traces on a rock.

I am not thin enough to sneak into the cramped narrow which leads to the main cavity. Anyway, it's very good because these ancient remains must be preserved.

A big thank you to Doris (the explorer) who rediscovered the entry and provided the coordinates.
