The Hague - Wateringse Veld

The Hague (Den Haag): city in The Netherlands where four Roman milestones were excavated.

In 1997, three Roman milestones were discovered at the Wateringse Veld, an urban development zone in The Hague. The originals are now at the Museon. The milestones indicate the distance to the next Roman city, Forum Hadriani (modern Voorburg) and can be dated to the reigns of the emperors Antoninus Pius (r.138-161; the column dates to 151), Caracalla (r.211-217), and Decius (r.249-251). A fourth milestone, from the reign of Gordian III (r.238-244), was found in the neighborhood.
