|The house at my back is the house from the so-called Vlaardingen Culture (approx. 3,000 BC) a reedwood construction from the New Stone Age or "neolithic". At the far, is my son, curious with the old canoe.|

At the request of the Federation Broekpolder Foundation, which aims to strengthen the culture and nature of the Broekpolder, ADC Heritage established a Program of Requirements for the establishment of an Educational Archaeological Heritage. The goal is to revive the rich archaeological past of Vlaardingen and its surroundings in a low-threshold way for educational purposes. This is achieved by building a number of buildings from prehistory, Roman times, Middle Ages and early modern times in a landscape belonging to the specific building periods. The Educational Archaeological Heritage has a green and playful. In the past, it was used with natural building materials that came from the immediate area. Each period of time has its own landscape type, which will give the natural values in the Broekpolder a further boost. The Educational Archaeological Heritage, part of the "Integraal Inrichtingplan Broekpolder", is being realized in cooperation with the University of Leiden and the municipality of Vlaardingen. I have made some photos when we visited this afternoon the Educational Archeological Heritage in Broekpolder. Again, I have seen how rich this old city where I live both in history in culture. It amaze me how the remnants from the past era were keep safe and preserved. Please enjoy again the photos that I have made.
