- from Vikings
Wouldn’t it be fun to go back to the age of the Vikings, over 1,000 years ago? You can only imagine it, though. Going back in time only happens in science fiction – right?
Wrong! You can go back. At least, you can visit a detailed reconstruction in the city of York, in northeastern England. There, you can travel back 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 sounds, smell scents, and touch things from a civilization long gone. You can even see townspeople buying, selling, working, talking, laughing, and playing.
