What to expect

Board your time machine and travel back 1000 years to enter the world of Vikings.

Travel through the busy market and smell the fresh fish on the riverside, walk through the blasts of the smoke of the blacksmith's furnace, visit the hearth scene inside a Viking home. JORVIK offers you a complete look into the Viking way of life. The layout of the Viking houses, the craftsmen working, the smells of cooking and the cesspit, it is all based on evidence.

Everything you see and pass is based on archaeological facts discovered during the Coppergate excavations around 1980. Archaeologists unearthed remains of a 10th century Viking building after digging on the site of an old sweet factory.

The damp conditions of the soil helped preserve Viking items such as wood, leather, cloth, bugs and even a Viking toilet and its contents. In total, an incredible 40,000 objects were uncovered by excavating 36,000 layers and sieving 8 tonnes of soil!
