Celebrating Vikings in Yorkshire

The JORVIK Viking Festival has been going strong since 1985 – but Yorkshire has celebrated their Viking history for much longer than that. When and where did it all start? How are they related to modern day reenactors? And just what did Edwardian Brits think of people dressing up as Vikings?

Join us as we speak with Dr Chris Tuckley, head of interpretation for the Jorvik Group, to find out more.
