What Lies Beneath Montreal? A 15,000-Year-Old Cavern

For someone who loves to go caving, finding a new, never-seen-before cavern is akin to King Arthur finding the Holy Grail.

Now imagine finding it beneath a major metropolitan area like Montreal and you can understand the excitement Luc Le Blanc and Daniel Caron experienced in October when they discovered a network of caves believed to date back as many as 15,000 years. Back to the Earth's last Ice Age.

Luc Le Blanc spoke to Vermont Edition to explain how the cave was found and why it's important.

Listen above to Le Blanc's conversation with Vermont Edition.

Broadcast live on Wednesday, Dec. 20 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
