For those visiting the Roman Festival in Nijmegen on 19 and 20 th of june, the book can be had at the stand of Museum het Valkhof, they have a number of copies with them and that saves postage Big Grin I have already ordered my own, as it is a limited edition and the Dutch one is already gone.
That is very good news!!
Thanks Robert, guess I had better grab one before they are all gone.
Hi Robert, is this the english translation of the Roman part of the 'geschiendenis van Nijmegen' published in 2005? If not, I think I've to get a copy before it is gone.
Hi Jurjen,

I have asked, and indeed it is the English translation, but without the pre-historie and supplemented with further findings and observations done after 2004. So I am well pleased with this "Roman" edition and hope it will contain some additional stuff. As I am getting one anyway, will be glad to share!
