Preuswald, south of Vaals/ Aachen ( Dreilandereck); here it is very well visible that what we call ' forests' are in fact large tree plantations. Still the view is nice and it's good breathing. Reforestation for wood production is always better than intensive agriculture

De presentatie uit 2005 is als teaching document geüpload naar Academia edu. De powerpoint presentatie toont bijvoorbeeld wanneer bekende ' onkruiden' als vogelmuur en brandnetel voor het eerst voorkwamen in ons land, althans bekend zijn uit archeologische context. Ook laat het zien dat we eigenlijk een viooltjesland zijn en dat het goed mogelijk was dat Romeinen de Late stekelnoot (Xantium strumarium) mogelijk hebben gebruikt om hun haar mee te verven: ze zouden daarmee meer op de Germanen hebben willen lijken... maar of dat waar is?

Changing point.
Already read a lot about Schrodinger, Heisenberg and principles of quantum physics.... now... decided to study (a part of) QM in a more rigorous way, estimated path for this is 4 years, but what is time?

At least this means less time and energy for archaeology, still nature is everywhere around so beautiful trees and forests still will cross my path during the walks... :)

The conference presentation about vegetation history in South - Limburg is translated into English and accessible for teaching purposes. A more profound view on how the vegetation developed on the loess soils, based on the work of Janssen/ Bunnik/ Kalis ( pollenanalysis). This presentation has been given for sections of NHGL in Limburg in 2009/2010 and is including additional information about local vegetation around Maastricht from the Roman period from the author based on botanical macro - remains.

This Roman mosaic has been made with small mosaic stones ( ca 1 x 1 cm or less) found in 2013 and related with an important Roman villa at Bocholtz (NL). The mosaic stones or ' tesserae' are not glued, so the design could easily change. The design patterns are imaginary, as we do not know how it has looked like in reality- cause the villa has been destroyed in ca 275 AD. The decoration probably was only for parts of the bathroom and other important rooms.
