The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

Arnhem

on July 8, 2014

 

Scan 2 - Version 3This lovely card comes from Chris in the Netherlands and shows the city of Arnhem which has an incredible history and prehistory. First mentioned in literature in the 800s, human settlement in the area has been dated to at least 70,000 years ago with the find of two ancient fire-stones. Amazing. In more modern history, it was the site of a WW2 battle and now is one of the largest Dutch cities. Here you can see Sonsbeekpark.
