Rouge - Croix

Description

About a hundred meters up the road, you can see the Rouge Croix (i.e. Red Cross), a wooden cross at the foot of a tree that is planted on the exact location of a Roman necropolis and Merovingian cemetery. During archaeological excavations that were conducted here, 506 sepulchers from the 5th and 7th centuries were found. These Roman incineration sepulchers contained weapons, pottery and glassware. The tombs are of great archaeological importance, especially the two tombs dating from the early 8th centuries, which held two horsemen who had been buried with their horses. This part of the area is rife with ancient objects and testimonies from different historic eras (prehistoric, Celtic, Gallo-Roman or Merovingian).
The micro brewery of the Lesse in Eprave, has quite recently started brewing a beer called « La Rouge-Croix ». It’s a brown beer with a distinct hop taste, with chocolate and malt aromas.
