In the 1500's


After the Romans left in around 400, the history of Woerden stops. The local people moved in the Castellum but for about a thousend years the city disapears from the stages of history until it is mentioned again around 1400. By the 1500's it has become quit a prosporous town.
I live at the spot exactly between the mill and the castle you see. The (old) city outline as is shown at the manquette is still present today.
