AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (Reuters) -- Are the three musketeers and four swashbuckling chums buried under an unassuming Dutch garden in the town where legendary swordsman D'Artagnan was killed?

Police plan to turn over an investigation into the discovery of the seven skeletons to archaeologists in the southern Dutch town of Maastricht, which has a history of battles going back to Roman times.

"Specialists are determining how long the bodies have been there," a police spokesman said Tuesday.

"Our first impression is that we are talking about an archaeological find of Roman or French soldiers."
