Jorvik Viking Centre, York England

About Jorvik Viking Centre

The Jorvik Viking Centre (pronounced “yorvik”) is the site of one of the most famous discoveries. During the interim of 1976-1981 archaeologists (from the York Archaeological Trust) had discovered homes, workshops, backyards belonging to the Vikings. Of course, the name Jorvik is the Vikings name for the City of York as it stood then, around 1000 years ago. 

Incredibly, Jorvik Viking centre is situated on the site where this discovery was made and the excavations took place.  Of course, the Viking Age experience is a reconstruction of the era including Viking streets and life as it would have been during the 10th century.  It consists of unique exhibitions based on careful research over 30 years. You can find the Jorvik Viking Centre at the Coppergate Centre
