the National Museum of Antiquities
Dorestad and its networks
In 2019, the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden will again host the international congress on Dorestad, the Carolingian emporium in the present-day Netherlands. This is exactly ten years after the first Congress, and fifty years since the famous Dorestad brooch was found. The Dorestad Congress brings together scholars to debate about this site and its counterparts in Europe, as well as the material culture, urbanisation and environment of the Early Middle Ages.
