The goal of these digital history projects is to provide a holistic account of the military inundations during the Dutch Wars of Independence. Each project explores the floods from a different perspectives. The Brief History provides context of how the floods were used, the interactive map allows users to visualize which towns and cities were impacted. The podcast provides insight into my overall research and the correspondence map showcases William of Orange's network before and during the wars.
