Tumuli – Vorsen en Montenaken (Gingelom)

Dating back to the 2nd century AD, the six Roman burial mounds or tumuli are spread over three sites: Twee Tommen, Drie Tommen and Avernassetom. At the Twee Tommen site you will have the opportunity to discover the Gallo-Roman villa landscape, whereas the focus at Drie Tommen is on the archaeological discoveries excavated there in 1862. At the Avernassetom site you will learn more about Gallo-Roman burial rites and life after death.
