    This is a tour along the archeological sites of the Roman era in the centre of Woerden.

    The Romans lived in this area from around 41 till approximately 275 A.D. The Castellum Laurium,  of which the contours have been made visible again on the Kerkplein, was situated along the Roman Limes (pronounce: Lie-mes). The Limes was the northern border of the Roman Empire and ran from England (Hadrian Wall) via the Netherlands and Germany as far as the Black Sea. Even in North Africa Roman Castella and watch-towers have been found.

    The Romans have left many traces. The first discoveries in Woerden already happened in 1590. But especially in the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century much has surfaced during archeological research. Amongst other things 7 Roman vessels were found, but also the castellum, the vicus (the village) and lots of objects.

    During this tour you will hear more about all of this.
