A Few Words About York
York is best known for its strong Viking and Roman roots, with many of the archaeological structures still remaining and inspiring later architecture. Jórvík (the Viking name) also has a top university, the world famous York Minster
and a growing service industry (in the 1990’s it was based around rail and chocolate manufacture).
York developed due to it’s location on the River Ouse and due to the tidal flow from the River Humber. This made it a stategic outpost for the Viking traders as they came, saw and conquered. The Romans were the first to settle in York and the first mention of York (Eboracum) was on a wooden tablet found at the Northumberland fortress of Vindolanda. The Vikings followed the Romans around 866 AD and JORVIK Viking Centre
is a great place offering a glimpse into Viking life in York.
It was the Romans who originally built the walls surrounding the city, and part of their stonework can still be seen; but most were built in the 11th century onwards, along with numerous towers such as Clifford’s Tower, which was the keep of York Castle, and the scene of the massacre of 150 Jews in 1189.
In more recent years, York played an important role in the rail industry and as the 20th century came in, it employed around 5,500 staff. Most of the employment is in the service industries, information technology and tourism. Current population according to council
details is around 200,000.
