Introduction

In the middle ages the island of Schokland was bigger than it is nowadays, but the Zuiderzee kept eating pieces of the island, in the middle of the 19th century the situation was getting to dangerous and Schokland was evacuated in 1859 for safety reasons, but after that order the island almost didnĀ“t get any smaller. Since 1942 it is embedded in the Noord-Oostpolder, and no longer an island. Of the three villages that excisted on the island only the village of Middelbuurt survived. Nowadays Schokland is a Unesco World heritage site, and the site also includes a museum.
