- from Vikings
What if you could get beamed back to the age of the Vikings? Imagine seeing what life was like over 1,000 years ago. You can only imagine it, since going back in time only happens in science fiction – right?
Wrong! You can go back – thanks to an amazing reconstruction in the city of York, in northeastern England. There, you can time travel to Jorvik, the busy capital of a Viking kingdom. Ten thousand Vikings once lived there. Today, you can stroll through a rebuilt village and see the sights. You can hear the sounds, smell the scents, and touch the objects from a civilization long gone. You can even see some townspeople buying, selling, working, talking, laughing, and playing.
Let’s get ready! A tour is about to begin.
