If you color the map of the Netherlands with the places where mounds are or once stood, the province of Friesland (in the northern part of the Netherlands) turns dark. The elevated residential mound is typical for the Frisian landscape. A new knowledge and information center is located on the highest mound, in Hegebeintum. A wealth of history is hidden in these artificial hills, which have been inhabited since the seventh century BC.
Archaeological exhibits are often dark and use archaic (serif) fonts. We chose to keep the design light and to use contemporary (Acumin) and somewhat futuristic (Neue Machina) typography. In a sense, the mounds are not a relic, but still relevant due to rising sea levels.
