The Vikings had a terrible reputation in the early Middle Ages. After they plundered the monastery at Lindisfarne in England (793 AD), the infamous Drakars were suddenly everywhere. They were also identified in the area that would later become the Netherlands. At Wijk bij Duurstede a rich harbor was established that was called Dorestad.

Batavialand is both an indoor museum and a historical shipyard. Here you can see how ships are built and conserved, visit the reconstruction of the 17th century VOC ship the Batavia and find out more about the Dutch role in water management worldwide. There is special attention for the province Flevoland (which includes 450 shipwrecks) and the Zuiderzeeproject.

Photographer with a passion for history. I make lively scenes that show what life must have looked like in various time-periods. I have done this for museums for either (event) promotion or to liven up their exhibition.
