Celtic fields - Ede

N 52.012331 / E 5.72496

At the Panoramaweg near Ede you will find Celtic fields, literally ancient fields. How old they are exactly is not known but is thought to be between 1300 BC and 200 AD. The farmers in those days made fields of about 30 by 30 meters and built meter-wide defensive ramparts around it. Several of these fields together resulted in a remarkable castellated pattern. The remains of the ramparts in the pattern can still be seen on the viewing platform. Did you know that the name Celtic fields is actually incorrect? It was invented by an English archaeologist in 1923, but the fields have nothing to do with Celts. Raatakkers is the correct name but it is hardly used.
