Walking in the historical centre of Assen, it´s worth to look around for some details.
In the Kloosterstraat you can see the gardenwall belonging to the Drostenhuis (18th century).

Allthough the wall looks much older than the Drostenhuis, it´s built later in 1848. It looks older, because they used old bricks of the former prison.
In the wall you can find an old waterpump, placed in 1895 at the same place as a medieval well was situated.

So history in Assen is like a puzzle.
