Tongeren is a city in eastern Belgium. A modern building houses its Gallo-Roman Museum. Inside are displays from when the city was a major trading hub. In the main square is the 19th-century statue of Ambiorix, a local king who defeated the invading Romans in 54 B.C. The remains of the medieval walls surround the city center.
Oudenaarde is a Belgian municipality in the Flemish province of East Flanders. From the 15th to the 18th century, but especially in the 16th century, Oudenaarde was a world-known centre of tapestry production. The town's name, meaning “old field”, still lingers on in “outnal”, an obsolete English term for a kind of brown linen thread.
