Forum Hadriani (Voorburg)

Forum Hadriani, modern Voorburg, was the capital of the Cananefates, a romanized tribe in the western part of the Netherlands. It was a small town with about 1,000 inhabitants, that appears to have grown from a settlement that may have been founded by Gnaeus Domitius Corbulo, who in 47 ordered his soldiers to dig a canal to connect the rivers Meuse and Rhine. Today, I revised an older article, and put it online. If you want to visit the site: prepare for a disappointment – it is on the UNESCO list of World Heritage and can therefore not be excavated. Still, you can visit the small, charming museum Swaensteyn.
