- from Vikings
Imagine being beamed back to the age of the Vikings, over 1,000 years ago. You can only imagine it, because going back in time only happens in science fiction – right?
Wrong! You can time travel – thanks to a remarkable reconstruction in the city of York, in northeastern England. Today, you can journey back in time to Jorvik, the thriving capital of a Viking kingdom, where 10,000 Vikings lived. You can stroll through a rebuilt Viking village and see the sights. You can hear the sounds, smell the aromas, and touch the findings from a civilization of yesteryear. You can even see some townspeople buying, selling, working, talking, laughing, and playing.
Step right up! A tour is about to begin.
