Jorvik

This very popular attraction reveals the archeological remains of Viking York, or Jorvik, unearthed here from 1976 to 1981. Deep underground, you're shuttled back in time 1,000 years to a reconstructed Viking street complete with thatched houses, lifelike figures and the evocative sounds and smells of everyday life. Traveling in a “time capsule” back to the year AD 975, you “fly” across the Viking city, over streets and backyards, to discover how a Viking city of 10,000 people functioned on this very site.
