In the family exhibition Romans along the banks of the Rhine, visitors of all ages can find out how people lived along the banks of the Rhine in the Netherlands 2,000 years ago. At the time, the river marked the limes, the northern boundary of the Roman Empire. And if you thought that this region was inhabited only by soldiers in fortresses, you would be quite wrong. The villages that lay along the border, and even the fortresses, were full of the soldiers’ families: women, children and servants. Among them too lived the traders and craftsmen who did business with the army. Their stories are now told together in a single exhibition for the first time. Quite a departure: not so long ago, the border was seen primarily as a military stronghold. Little was known about all those other border dwellers.
