The History of the Netherlands: Part 1

Hosted by Dr. Charles Doherty

Trace the extraordinary rise of the Netherlands, from its early history to its 17th-century Golden Age, with our Viking Resident Historian Charles Doherty. During this unprecedented period of economic growth—referred to by Charles as the “miracle of the lowlands”—this Roman and, later, Viking outpost developed into a country with lasting significance for the world and made its indelible mark on history by fostering a culture of exploration.
