Germania inferior: small province of the Roman empire, situated along the Lower Rhine. This webpage is part of a series of short descriptions of villages in Germania inferior. An overview can be found here.

The remains of ancient walls were discovered in the river Meuse near Stokkem. They can be identified with the late-ancient fort Feresnes, which is shown on the Peutinger map. Unless the river is partly redirected, it will not be possible to excavate the site. Yet divers may one day do some research.
