Milestone Alphen aan den Rijn

In the municipality of Alphen aan de Rijn, numerous archaeological sites from the Roman Limes period have been excavated and are still present. However, much of the Roman history is still buried and unseeable. The aim of this project is to tell something about the history in this landscape. So that recreants, tourists and travellers are informed about the historical value of the place.

The concept consists of milestones, a reference to the Roman Period, on which the story of Roman history and excavations is told. Panels are attached to the milestones, and on these panels you can read more about the location of the milestone and the role it played in the Roman Period. These milestones fit right in with the Limes atmosphere.


Milestones Alphen aan de Rijn consists of:

  • 4 milestones in the municipality of Alphen aan de Rijn (writing texts, finding suitable images)
  • Design and production of the information panels

Municipalities Alphen aan de Rijn, Nieuwkoop and Zoeterwoude
