Old Tombstone at cemetery near the fort

ON MISSION
Continuing my odyssey with Department of Archaeology – University of Indonesia, here we cruised the ruin of Fortress Speelwijk in Banten.

SPEELWIJK SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF ME
This fortress is sited in the north west of Surosowan, Pamarican village. Built in 1685 by the Dutch. The Ruin of fortress implies that it was a great fortress in Banten, height about 5 meters and length of each side of 80 meters, also it was surrounded by the canal for defence. It has four bastions that still stand sturdily.

In the eastern of Speelwijk, we found the old cemetery that told the glorious and sadness of this fortress. They were rest in peace accompanied by a lonely fortress…
