De Binnendieze van 's-Hertogenbosch: 800 jaar geschiedenis, 25 jaar restauratie (Binnendieze Hertogenbosch: 800 years of history, 25 years of restoration)

Tussen het domein Orthen en de heerlijkheid Vught, bij de samenkomst van Aa en Dommel, vestigden zich op het einde van de 12e eeuw vrije kooplieden. Gewoonlijk ontwikkelden steden zich uit een kleine nederzetting of in de directe nabijheid van burchten of kloosters. Hier ontstond echter - op een relatief hoog gelegen dekzandrug - een nieuwe stad. Door de snelle uitbreiding van de oude stad kwamen kilometers natuurlijke watergangen binnen de vesting te liggen. Dit stelsel van waterlopen - genaamd de Binnendieze - verbond de stad via de Dieze met de grote rivieren, waardoor een levendige handel ontstond. TOen door de de ontwikkeling van wegen het vervoer over water afnam, verloor de Binnendieze haar economische betekenis en bleef de functie van rioolafvoer over. Dit boek beschrijft het ontstaan, gebruik, verval en de restauratie van dit unieke, in een Middeleeuwse stad gelegen, stelsel van waterlopen en geeft uitvoerig verslag van het waterbouwkundig herstel.

Orthen between the domain and the glory of Vught, at the confluence of Aa and Dommel, was settled at the end of the 12th century by free traders. Usually developed cities located in a small village or in the immediate proximity of castles or monasteries. But here arose - at a relatively high altitude sand ridge - a new city. The rapid expansion of the old city mileage natural watercourses came to be within the fortress. This system of watercourses - called Binnendieze - connected the city via Dieze with large rivers, creating a lively trade. When transport decreased water through the development of roads, Binnendieze lost its economic importance and continued to function on sewer. This book describes the creation, use, decay and restoration of this unique, situated in a medieval city, system of watercourses and gives a detailed report of the hydrological recovery.

This book is in excellent condition throughout.
