Randwijk

Randwijk: place of a hypothetical fort in the Roman Rhine limes.

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.
