Atlas of Dutch Brazil

Since c. 1585 Dutch traders were searching the Brazilian coastline for trading possibilities in Brazil wood and sugar. In 1630 the Dutch West India Company even founded a colony they called New Holland that existed for 24 years. Together with Brazilian partners a historical and archaeological inventory is being made of all remains that refer to this Dutch period. The results will be presented on a website and in a publication, so the international bonds will be strengthened.
