Jorvik Viking Centre Visitor Centre or Museum in York, North Yorkshire, England


Viking Museum and Village in York

Everything in jorvik viking Centre is based on archaeological evidence unearthed during the Coppergate excavations undertaken between 1979–81 by York Archaeological Trust.

Archaeologists started digging on the site of an old sweet factory and unearthed remains of 10th century Viking-age buildings that were surrounded by moist, spongy layers of earth similar to that of a peat bog.

These damp conditions helped preserve everyday Viking items such as wood, leather, cloth, bugs and even a Viking toilet and its contents.

In total an incredible 40,000 objects were uncovered by excavating 36,000 layers and sieving 8 tonnes of soil!
A variety of seasonal events take place throughout the year.
