Thursday outing to Tongeren

Today I went to Tongeren in the Limburg region of Belgium, bordering the Limburg region in the Netherlands.  This is the part which the Romans once conquered.

In the Gallo-Roman museum is a temporary exhibition on Vikings! It was absolutely fantastic.  There is also a permanent exhibition of development of man from the beginning of times to the Roman times. Very interesting indeed.

More will come on this outing. Just want to say that I actually managed to buy a book as well! What's new? It is The Celts by Peter Berresford Ellis.  I am looking forward to read about these peoples who conquered Europe at a certain time. And...which culture we still enjoy today!

A separate post about my visit to Tongeren will come.
