Details

Viking-age York was around 6.5 metres below the current street level, and this is where visitors will find JORVIK Viking Centre’s recreation of 10th century Coppergate – a key trading street in Viking-age York. The recreation is built at the same level where archaeologists uncovered preserved timbers from Viking buildings – and some preserved timbers can even be seen beneath a glass floor.
