Discover the Roman Limes

Back 2000 years ago, the northern border of the Roman Empire cut across what is now the Netherlands. The Romans called this boundary line the limes. Today, it is UNESCO World Heritage. The Romans built watchtowers, forts, roads and ports along the limes. Settlements grew up around the forts, populated by craftsmen, merchants and soldiers’ families. The excavated remains of these sites together form the country's largest archaeological monument.
