Exhibition Surrounded by Castles - In West Friesland
Extensive research into castles
The reason for the exhibition Surrounded by Castles - In West Friesland is new insights gained from recent research. For example, amateur historian Ben Dijkhuis discovered a lot of new information about Radboud Castle in a 15th-century rebuilding document unearthed from the National Archives in The Hague. As part of a PhD study on castle building programmes of Count Floris V and his father Willem II commissioned by Tilburg University and Groningen University, geophysical research was carried out on the grounds of Radboud Castle in 2020. Geophysical research has also been carried out at other locations where castles stand or have stood. The results from all these studies have been incorporated into the exhibition "Surrounded by Castles - In West Friesland".
