Here, archaeologists discovered the preserved remains of Jorvik - the place the Vikings once called home. They used that evidence to create one of the world's most enthralling reconstructions of the Viking Age.
Now, a new chapter in Jorvik's history has opened, following 20 years of academic research into the excavations of the site on which the Jorvik Viking Centre now stands. In a major redevelopment, this research has been used to transform the Jorvik Viking Centre into new JORVIK - a must-see for all visitors to the city of York.
Additionally, by visiting you will ensure that future generations benefit from research similar to that which helped create JORVIK. Through JORVIK, its owners, York Archaeological Trust, seek to create an appreciation of the importance of archaeology, and its role in helping our understanding of the past.
JORVIK is situated in the pleasant Coppergate shopping area close to the centre of York.
