EEN ONBEKEND STEENHUIS TE HEVESKES (GR.)
In June 1993 a rescue excavation was carried out in the dwelling mound of the former village of Heveskes. The northeastern part of the mound was being dug away to create an industrial site. It is clear that the mound was substantially enlarged in medieval times. The oldest pottery sherds found on the spot dated from the 7th-8th century, although habitation in this area must have started at least by the first century AD. The site of a moated, medieval house was discovered. Defence structures like this are widespread and well known in the region, but in this case no documentary was available. Material from the moat suggests that the house was built with large bricks, probably in the 13th century, and was demolished already in the 14th century.
