Description

Archaeological note

The Roman castellum in Maldegem Vake was discovered at the end of the 1970s by archaeological aerial photography. The parallel tracks were found to belong to the same square structure. After a limited test slot investigation, a systematic excavation was started in 1984. The investigation lasted until 1992.
The reinforcement, entirely built in wood and earth, has a perfectly square floor plan and covers an area of almost 2.5 ha. The floor plan and structures point to a castellum, a smaller camp for auxiliary troops. A mixed auxiliary group stayed in Maldegem. This is a unit consisting of infantry and cavalry. The camp has a classical Roman defense system with two pointed canals and an earthen wall with palisade. Research has shown that wooden towers were provided at the four corners of the castellum. In the middle of each side there was an entrance gate and access road to the camp.

Today there is nothing left of it

I hope that you enjoy it
