Jorvik Viking Centre Re-opened

I am delighted that the Jorvik Viking Centre has re-opened following the terrible floods of 2015, and it is better than ever! I was privileged to be asked to contribute to the Discover Coppergate gallery which features video, photos and personal memories of working at the world famous dig which ran from 1976-1982; I dug there in the summer of 1979 just before going off to university to study archaeology and history. The ride around Viking Age York has been updated and extended, and the new spacious and light artefact hall shows off many of the amazing artefacts found during the excavations.

Definitely worth a visit!
