In Roman times, Tongeren was the capital of the Civitas Tungrorum. This administrative district stretched over eastern Flanders and a large part of Wallonia, with adjacent parts in the Netherlands, Germany, France and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

Together with Ghent University, we have mapped the finds from this extensive area, from the Iron Age to the early Middle Ages. Part of the database is accessible to the public online. The project offers many opportunities, especially for researchers. Contact us and we will look at the possibilities together.

The Gallo-Roman Museum is interested in participating in any scientific research regarding the Civitas Tungrorum. We would also be happy to discuss your ideas on this.
