Climate change and recent flooding led to a huge program in the Netherlands to strengthen the river dikes and deepen the rivers in order to make space for floodwaters in the future. This project, of course, has a huge impact on the landscape an the archaeology in the river areas. In order to bring the heritage aspects into the mind of the engineers the Cultural Heritage Agency has made a video, in cooperation with Echo tekst&presentaties, on the history of the Meuse river. This video contains 3D reconsructions and new archaeological and geological research. The whole video has been made as an informative, yet entertaining film in order to reach a wide public.
