In this paper a review is given of the geological data available in the surroundings of the Hondsbossche Zeewering and of the Pleistocene and Holocene history of the only part of the NorthHolland coastal area where a natural coastal (dunal) defence system is lacking. The Holocene history of the area is dominated by the southerly presence of the major tidal inlet of Bergen, between approximately 5000 and 3000 years BP and by the topography of the top of the Pleistocene deposits. Finally, attention is given to the coastal development during the last millenium of the Earth's history.
