Good news for lovers of Roman history and archaeology, because in Museum Hoge Woerd (Leidsche Rijn), everything is explained in English (and German). There’s a lot to see and to discover: from all sorts of facts about the Roman border (Limes) that ran through the Netherlands and a glimpse of everyday life in the Roman Empire, to the best preserved Roman river ship ever found in Northwest Europe and a modern version of a Roman fort – complete with watchtowers and ramparts. You can also test your own skills as an archaeologist at the ArcheoHotspot. Help classify and reassemble earthenware shards or bring along finds from your own garden to identify.
