Deventer

Deventer is a municipality and city in the Salland region of the Dutch province of Overijssel. Deventer is largely situated on the east bank of the river IJssel, but also has a small part of its territory on the west bank. In 2005 the municipality of Bathmen (pop. 5,000) was merged with Deventer as part of a national effort to reduce bureaucracy in the country.Population centresAssociated hamlets at second level Deventer (see below) Snippeling (a small community about 2 km east of the city centre) De Bannink Oxe Molenbelt Rande Tjoene Linde Oude Molen ('old mill') Zandbelt Schalkhaar (former centre of Diepenveen municipality including Lettele and Okkenbroek until 1/1/1999) Averlo FrieswijkApenhuizen ('monkey houses')DortherhoekLooPieriksmarsZuidloo HistoryFoundation and development in the Middle AgesDeventer was probably founded around 768 by the English missionary Lebuinus, who built a wooden church on the east bank of the river IJssel. In January 772 the sack and burning of this church by a Saxon expedition was the cause for the first punitive war waged by Charlemagne to the Saxons, in which, in retribution, the Irminsul (sacred tree) was destroyed. This was not the first human settlement at the location; between 1981 and 2006, remains of a Bronze Age settlement (dated to c.400 CE) were excavated at Colmschate, 4 km east of the current city
