Once you've explored York's medieval past - take in the sights, sounds and smells of Viking-age York! Ever wondered what Vikings ate for tea or what they did in their spare time? Or what kind of smells you’d find in a Viking village? Journey through 10th Century York in a time capsule and discover remarkably well-preserved Viking artefacts (including a Viking poo!) and explore the story behind the ground-breaking Coppergate dig.
This year at JORVIK, you'll also be able to uncover one of the largest hoards ever discovered in the UK. Found in a lead container in Lancashire, the Silverdale Hoard is comprised of over 200 pieces of silver rings, hacksilver and coins of Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Arabic origin. Providing a fascinating window into AD900 - a time when the trading town of Jorvik was at its peak - this hoard is a must-see in York this Summer. See the hoard up close and take home a special edition Silverdale coin when you visit JORVIK. Book your visit.
