Abstract
    One can find on the verge of the polders of Flanders and Zealand a series of fortified defence works dating back to the time of Norman invasions at the end of the 9th century. They look like a circular piece of land. The places here concerned are Bourbourg and Bergues-Saint-Winnoc (France, dép.Nord), Furnes (Belgium) and in the Netherlands, prov. Zealand, Oostburg, Souburg, Middelburg and Burgh. The chain of circular defence works is interrupted between Furnes and Oostburg. Here can be found however the cities of Oudenburg and Aardenburg, dating back to the Roman period. They have an approximately square shape, i.e. the shape of a Roman castellum.
