  • I'm been here to learn more from the early medieval emorpium Dorestad. My interest in particular how this Frisian trading city in the period 600 to 700 and to the acquisition by Tiel in 9th century has functioned. When the Frisians controlled trade on the North Sea and Dorestad was one of the largest emporia of West and North Europe. Immediately after the introduction movie I was struck dumb. The word Friesland or Frisian fell not once. However, Vikings and Romans and prehistory, while the core anyway is that it is the trading town of the Frisians. The rest of the museum was mainly focused on Vikings and Romans and then again after the Frisians. Though homes depicted by Vikings and prehistory etc, but not from a Frisian trader. The single reference that here had been two maps were Frisians. Am I going crazy? Why is the Frisian history so striking subordinated? While the core of Dorestad was? Granted, the books of Lute Vasile there were for sale in the shop, in which the history much more complete is described. Anyway, the museum gives you any insight in this and how many people know this if you those books.

  • Very nicely. But going on 1 October. Then moving to at the tourist office is not smaller. I was allowed to pick it up free apples in their garden. And delicious apple sauce.
