Category:Artificial dwelling hill
An artificial dwelling hill, also known as Terp, Wierde, Woerd, Warf, Warft, Werf, Wurt and Værft, is a mound, created to provide safe ground during high tide and river floods. These hills occur in the coastal parts of the Netherlands (in the provinces of Zeeland, Friesland and Groningen), in southern part of Denmark and in Germany where, before dikes were made, tides interfered with daily life. They also occur in the Rhine and Meuse river plains in the central part of the Netherlands.
