Archive 2016 Aardenburg Netherlands City hall. ,
10 Km of my home

Aardenburg is a city in the Dutch province of Zeeland. Aardenburg is located in the western part of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen and belongs to the municipality of Sluis. Aardenburg formed an independent municipality until 1995, including the centers of Eede, Sint Kruis and the hamlet Draaibrug.
Aardenburg was already inhabited in the Middle Stone Age, but only became a really large settlement in Roman times, when after 174 a castellum was built for the coastal surveillance of the borders of the Roman Empire. Aardenburg was still on a river, which gave a connection with the sea. That Aardenburg at that time would have been called 'Rodanum' is an attractive but not yet proven hypothesis.
The fort was abandoned around 225; the proof for this is that when a civilian temple was founded within the military walls. Between 260 and 274 in the time of the Gallic empire Aardenburg was again used as a fortress. It was evacuated because the natural environment changed. An attack by Germanic tribes may also have played a role.

I hope you enjoy
