Wander through the 17th-century Waterlooplein neighbourhood in 3D

What did life use to be like in the Waterlooplein neighbourhood? UvA archaeologists investigated this and created 3D reconstructions of what the neighbourhood must have looked like in the past. The result can be seen in the exhibition ‘Waterlooplein: the neighbourhood inside out' at the Jewish Historical Museum.

Natalie Park, student:

'Archaeology and Amsterdam? A perfect combination! You are surrounded by archaeology here! During the construction of the new metro line, for instance, many finds were made. As a student, you regularly visit the Allard Pierson Museum, where you study ancient materials while being surrounded by plaster copies of classical statues. During practical workshops, you study ceramics, glass finds, or bone combs in small classes tutored by very approachable staff.'
