whose ancient name is unknown; in the early Middle
Ages it was Rodanborch. Excavations have revealed some
large stone buildings (forum?) and the foundations of a
Celtic-Roman temple (5.5 x 5.5 m). The vicus (area ca.
10 ha) seems to have flourished particularly in the 2d and
3d c. A.D. No coins found there date later than ca. 273.
Aardenburg probably belonged to the civitas Menapiorum, and may have had a military function ca. 170-270.
Many bronzes, especially statuettes, and much pottery
have been found, mostly of Flemish-Roman workmanship.
