Abstract

In 1782, Pierre-Joseph Heylen, a member of the “Académie impériale et royale de Bruxelles”, presented a dissertation entitled Dissertatio de anti-quis romanorum monumentis. The author aimed to identify all the Roman remains discovered in the Austrian Netherlands and the Prince-Bishop-ric of Liège (present-day Belgium and Luxembourg). This dissertation was innovative and ambitious because it was the first “national” inventory of Ancient vestiges in that area. This geographical scope was in accordance with the historical works written by other academicians: at that time, most of them wanted to compose a “national” history of the Austrian Nether-lands. Heylen divided his dissertation into four chapters: introduction, roman coinage, antique roads and “monumenta” (inscriptions, architec-tural remains, vases...). Even if he observed by himself some vestiges and he got in contact with local antiquarians, his approach of the archaeologi-cal remains was not so innovative: the descriptions of the items found were brief and vague and he furnished only a few illustrations
