An unassuming Dutch garden may be the final resting place of seven musketeers
according to the town of Maastricht police, who have handed the investigation
over to the experts.
The Dutch town of Maastricht has been the site of battles since Roman times, so
the discovery of seven skeletons buried in a garden did not raise many
eyebrows, but these remains may be special. Could these be the skeletons of
musketeers? The possibility exists since the town was the site of the 1673
siege by the French in which fictional musketeer D'Artagnan was killed.
"Specialists are determining how long the bodies have been there," a police
spokesman said Tuesday.
Until the age of the remains is determined, no one will know for sue whether a
real D'Artagnan and his fellows are buried here.
