DVD of the Chronicles of Edam
A welcome addition to our range of products – A very special DVD with interesting stories and about Edam museum and our beautiful city.

The creators of the DVD Chronicles of Edam, are real storytellers They have collected a collection of stories, revelations and impressions of Edam. It became a quest to share the special stories behind the objects in the museum. There are also revelations and discoveries, such as a number of special graves in the Great Church, which appear to have a direct relationship with objects in the museum, and there is even a scoop: a previously unknown document from antiquity has been published in the archives.
Contents of the DVD:
- This unique DVD lasts more than an hour and consists of a number of atmospheric images of Edam from a tour of the museum with various background stories about the various objects.
- The writer Lydia Rood talks openly, in an interview, about her relationship with Trijntje Keever and how she was inspired to write the book “Girl on Chain”. There is also the surprising story of a special collection of books, forgotten for years, that was rediscovered in the Librije of the Great Church; and fantastic discovery of a previously unreleased document in relation to Michiel de Ruyter, probably unique in the Netherlands.
- The makers set themselves the goal of digitally recording Dutch cultural heritage. Some of the proceeds from the DVDs benefit the Dutch Cultural Heritage that is visualized on the DVDs.
