The first live talk in JORVIK Viking Centre's Gallery of 2022, including a full visit to JORVIK

Jim Spriggs and Sonia O'Connor were both working on the Coppergate dig in 1982 when a digger operator found a true archaeological treasure - the York Helmet.  Hear about the experience in their own words, and how the helmet was conserved, whilst enjoying a trip around JORVIK Viking Centre and seeing the wonderful artefact itself in our gallery.

The York Helmet is on loan from the Yorkshire Museum as part of a partnership between York Museums Trust and York Archaeological Trust.
