The Coppergate Excavation: More than Just Vikings

So far this season (and this podcast), we’ve talked a lot about the Vikings that lived here in York and especially on Coppergate. But the history of Coppergate is more than just the Anglo-Scandinavians that lived here in the 9th and 10th centuries. This episode, we’re talking again to Dr Chris Tuckley, Head of Interpretation and Engagement here at the JORVIK Viking Centre. You might recognise Chris from a previous episode, talking about how Yorkshire has celebrated the Vikings in the past 100 years. Today, though, he’s telling us all about the Medieval residents of Coppergate and what they left behind for us to look at today.
