Explore York’s Viking history on the very site where archaeologists uncovered remains of the Viking-Age City of ‘Jorvik’. Get face-to-face with our expert Viking residents, see over 800 of the items discovered on site, and learn what life was really like in our Special Exhibitions. 'Are You A Viking?' This new exhibition delves into the historic 'melting pot' of York that was created by immigration and trade in Viking times.Using computer technology, a 3-dimensional walk-through Viking wharf scene, graphics and interactive activities, visitors will be able to investigate: bone matieral; archaeological environmental evidence; oxygen isotope analysis; language and development of dialects; immigration patters and cultural mix and Viking trading routes.

JORVIK also takes visitors through a reconstruction of the actual Viking-Age streets which stood here 1000 years ago, faithfully recreated following twenty years of archaeological and historical research. A programme of special events runs throughout the year, including the Jorvik Viking Festival every February. Check our website for further details.
