In 71 AD, the Roman Ninth Legion identified the natural advantage of the land in between the junction of the rivers Foss and Ouse. The Celts called it Eburacon ‘the place where the yew trees grow’. Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and the Normans followed in developing York into the magnificent city it is today. We follow York’s progress through the ages and visit a number of its best known sites such as York Minster, Jorvik Centre and Clifford’s Tower.
