Abstract De geschiedenis van de dijken langs de Limburgse Maas is nog grotendeels onbekend. De Maas was in de negentiende eeuw in Midden- en Zuid-Limburg wel bedijkt, maar in het grootste deel van Noord-Limburg niet. Dit hing samen met de geomorfologische gesteldheid. De dijken waren haakvormig en beschermden de dorpen aan de bovenzijde en aan de rivierzijde. Aaneengesloten ringdijken waren door de grote hoeveelheden kwelwater weinig functioneel.
