What's ? in 2007

December 31, 2007
I've been neglecting the News section a bit, my apologies! Since July, we did many regular guard stints at the tower, plus the annual Open Monument weekend, as well as a special visit of my daughter's school class. I held a lecture in Amsterdam and one in Nijmegen, and we closed the year with a second show just before Christmas in Wijk bij Duurstede together with our friends from Corbvlo.

A quick update. New pictures from the tower, also two events we did in Houten, one in the old village centre in July and the other for the local children's event in August. In the meantime we also returned to the Dorestad Museum in July. I'll update the booklist next time.
