DE MEERN Utrecht, Netherlands.

Fort on the site called De Hoge Woerd, 5.5 km W of Utrecht, on the Limes Germaniae Inferioris. It was built near a river or creek now silted up. Its size is still unknown, but it was occupied from the Claudian period until ca. A.D. 250. Part of a barrack building has been found, and the foundations of what may have been a bath. Near the river some strata with level patches of charcoal may represent ustrina or perhaps small industries. Tiles with the stamps of several army units have been found. Finds are in the Provinciaal Oudheidkundig Museum, Utrecht.
