The Arab tombs at Anse Lascars

Some guides write Arab tombs from the 14th century were found at Anse Lascars. It is possible these are graves from seamen or crewmembers from pirate ships or corsairs, but most likely from the first settlers, because examinations pointed out these bones are about 200 years old. So certainly this are not 14th century tombs but graves from after the taking possession by the French. In the meantime the sea washed away these graves.
