Every Friday in August there will be guided tours through de exhibition Guards of the North. Romans in Wijchen.
The first four centuries the southern part of our country was part of the Roman Empire. In the second half of the first century, after the Batavian revolt, there was a period with peace (Pax Romana). The Romans built camps en brought peace and quiet.
New cities were built, Ulpia Noviomagus (Nijmegen) and Forum Hadriani (Voorburg), and in the countryside villas were built. The exhibition in our museum is built around the remainings of such a villa which were found in Wijchen. Who instructed to build this villa? Was it a Roman or a Batavian local?
An impression of the interior of the villa and other wonderful findings can be seen. Furthermore al kinds of findings from graves in the near area of the villa are shown.
Volunteers will guide you through this interesting exhibition. Please note that the tours are only in Dutch.
