York Celebrates Viking Heritage

By Linda Tancs

York, UK may be most recognized for its medieval Shambles, but its Viking history is just as compelling.  Now through 17 February visitors can celebrate all things Viking at the festival at Jorvik Viking Centre.  The Centre is built on the very location in York where archeological digs unearthed the ancient city of Jorvik, dating to AD 975.  The festival celebrates Viking arts and crafts, storytelling and historical Anglo-Scandinavian events.  Visit www.jorvik-viking-centre.co.uk for more information.
