Kennemerburg through the ages Part 3: The Romans arrive
About this creation
It's around the birth of Christ when we arrive at our next stop in history. We see the huge gates of Urbs Novus (New Town) arise in front of us... This is the first town to be established on the peninsula. It was built as a military settlement around 44 BC by centurion Brickius IV. The Forum Novus is a busy marketplace in town. It is also the only Roman town in the region.


When the gates open, the first thing we see is the huge forum and this temple of Jupiter(Zeus)the Roman major God. A modern temple with rather large columns.


The largest house on the Forum, the house of centurion Brickius V and his wife.


The thermae of Urbs Novus are a nice way of relaxing from our journey. Too bad only rich people are allowed in here.


Another house at the Forum. Must have been quite expensive...


Overlooking the Forum from birds eye view. The mountains that were once here were used for building this town.


Some of the poorer residents live in these houses, just off the Forum. They live with large numbers in these buildings.


After our visit, the gates close behind us. And another part of the journey has ended...

Hope to see you next time when we visit the first Christian town on the peninsula: Kennemerburgh (500 AD)
