Huis van Hilde

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Huis van Hilde


Huis van Hilde (Hilde's House) is the archaeology information centre and repository of the Dutch province of North Holland, which was opened in Castricum early 2015. It was named after a model and facial reconstruction that was made of a skeletal find from the 4th century and that came to be known as Hilde (of Castricum).

In the Netherlands the preservation and conservation of archaeological finds is a task of the provinces. Up to 2014 North Holland used a former rice-mill in Wormer for that purpose, but the depot was too small and climate control was insufficient. In 2011 the province decided to build an archaeological information centre in Castricum. Construction started mid-2013 and the new centre opened in January 2015.
