EARTHWORK project connects past, present and future

It’s hard to imagine the landscape of the Netherlands without its dykes. But just how old are these typically Dutch earthworks? This is what Prof. Jakob Wallinga, Chair of Soil Geography and Landscape at Wageningen University & Research, will be investigating in the EARTHWORK project. Along with quite a number of external partners, he hopes to gain a better understanding of how and when our predecessors modified the landscape to improve their living conditions.

Earthworks will teach us a lot about the past and future of our landscape.
