The archaeology behind the attraction

From the layout of the houses to the moss ‘growing’ on the roof, every detail in JORVIK Viking Centre’s reconstruction of 10th century York is based on the archaeology uncovered from the Coppergate dig in the late 1970s and early 80s.

Join archaeologist Ian Milsted for a unique livestreamed tour of the Viking-age homes, streets, backyards and latrines and hear how preserved remains give us such an elaborate picture of life over 1000 years ago.
