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.
City in the west of the Dutch province Utrecht, founded by the Romans in 40 AD as a castellum at the Northern Fronteer of the Roman Empire. Received city rights in 1372, forensic city for North and South Holland's bigger cities, 33.650 inhabitants.
