The name of the goddess Hurstrga was found in the fifties of the last century, on a 30 cm high altar stone near Tiel in the Betuwe area, the Netherlands. This stone dates from ca. 200 CE, when the area was occupied by the Romans. As with similar votive stones (see Nehalennia and Hludana), this stones has a Latin inscription giving thanks to the goddess in the name of a particular person (Valerius Silvester in this case). Since the altar stone was found in the area of Bergakker in the Betuwe, this is also where Hurstrga’s sanctuary may have been. The name Bergakker suggests a place higher than its surroundings. Likewise, the part hurst in the name Hurstrga means something like ‘bush’, which may may indicate a sacred place. The area of Bergakker has revealed several archaeological finds, including a scabberd with runic inscriptions (unique in this area) and a silver votive plate showing three Matronae, ot mother goddesses. What we may have here is a sanctuary devoted to the cult of Hurstrga, the local goddess of the Bergakker area.
