The location of Loowaard (21)
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 Roman fort near modern Loowaard was situated near the ancient bifurcation of the Rhine and Waal. Because these rivers have changed their course several times, the fort can no longer be traced. Stray finds, however, suggest the presence of Roman troops after c.30. The youngest artifacts are from the fourth century, but it is not clear whether the occupation was continuous.
