New ar­chae­o­log­i­cal site in Ton­geren

Timeless Travels Magazine - - ARCHAEOLOGICAL NEWS -

For the first time, the Te­seum Ar­chae­o­log­i­cal Site in Ton­geren, Lim­burg, will re­veal 2,000 years of ar­chae­ol­ogy. Vis­i­tors can head un­der­ground to dis­cover arte­facts from no less than seven churches that lay buried be­low the earth of the Basil­ica of Our Lady.

Ton­geren was the first town of Bel­gium, and this unique new ex­pe­ri­ence gives you a chance to glimpse its in­cred­i­ble his­tory - dat­ing back to an­cient Ro­man con­struc­tions. The walls and foun­da­tions of the old Ton­geren town are still stand­ing, and on view un­der the church. Traces of Ro­man con­struc­tion works have also been found.
