Eindhoven is a city where people come and go. This was the case long before Philips started attracting people for example.
Further back in the past, migrants from all over the world came to Eindhoven. This became evident after examining hundreds of skeletons which were excavated at the Catherina Church in 2005 and 2006. City archaeologist Nico Aarts, together with 14 other authors, wrote a book about it.
Alderman Mary-Ann Schreurs will receive the first copy today. After that, the book will be available in Eindhoven bookstores.
