The 1000 year old Lime Tree

In Oisterwijk (The Netherlands), the village where I was born, you can find this ancient Lime Tree. Nobody knows exactly how old it is, but for certain this tree has played an interesting role in history. The tree was first mentioned in written sources that go back to the year 1388. During a long period trials and tribunes were held beneath its branches, and people from the area gathered for these acts of justice.
