York Viking Festival 2018

The York Viking festival is well underway this week, as it celebrates the Viking history in the city.

Around the city centre, you can visit the Viking Camps, battlegrounds and learn about how they lived and invaded York.

Apparently, we owe a lot to the Vikings, from their language which is where some of York’s Street names are from, their advanced boats and the invention of the hair comb.

The week-long festival ends on a march through the town leading to the final battle.
