360º Virtual Tour of Jorvik

Explore the sights and sounds of Viking-age York as you explore JORVIK Viking Centre’s world-famous recreation of 10th century Coppergate, virtually transported in your own Time Capsule.  Best viewed on a tablet or mobile phone – or even a VR headset – so you can look around just as you would on a real visit. 


Monday 15th February, live streamed at 3.00pm (available on demand after the event). Free of charge.

Poo Day

Discover why archaeologists love poo, and get hands on making your own replica poo fossil during the livestream (adult supervision is strongly recommended!). For more information and ingredients:
