Gendron, the neighbouring hamlet

Description

The hamlet of Gendron has been inhabited by man since Prehistoric times: in the Gendron Cave, locally known as the ‘trou des nutons’ (which means the goblins’ hole), cave that has been used since the Stone Age as a burial place, 17 human skeletons were dug up. The villagers used to be known by the nickname ‘Marauds’ (which means poacher), or sometimes even ‘Nutons’ (the Ardennes equivalent of a goblin or dwarf),  owing to the large number of caverns and holes in the area as well as the peaceful nature of the villagers.
