The location of Randwijk (16)
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.

Perhaps, there was a Roman auxiliary fort near modern Randwijk on the south bank of the river Rhine. The site was of some strategic importance, because from this place, a road led to the north, to the Veluwe, with its iron ores. Archaeological remains, however, are almost absent from Randwijk, and the few objects may as well point to a non-military nature of the ancient settlement.
