Jorvik Viking Centre is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the UK outside London, and the 16 million people who?ve visited the place came to see and experience life as it would have been 1000 years ago by walking the reconstructed Viking Time streets. There are remains of houses that existed over a thousand years back and they are revealed beneath your feet as you revel in he beauty and simplicity of those times.
The excavations in the area reveal a lot of objects including timber which is visible for everyone to inspect and gather your own understanding about the Vikings; a lot of people come to experience this. You can get to understand who they were, why they came here, how they lived and also how they died. All these answers have been accumulated over the years as archeologists dig out the relevant pieces which help them piece together a significant historical time.
There are audio and video showings which also help explain all that can be understood so far from the findings so you get acquainted with the historical place. This place was discovered back in the 1970s by York Archeological Trust and through a strenuous effort they managed to set camp at the very site where these Vikings lived over 1000 years ago, and also they?ve tried to recreate the old workshops and homes as they were in those days in order to project a more accurate finding.
The excavations revealed a lot about those times and through the massive reconstruction effort they managed to redo the houses, back yards and all that could be clearly restored without interfering with the natural site, providing a unique experience where people could come in from all over the world to enjoy the Jorvik Viking Centre U.K and perhaps relive the old time ads the Vikings would have so many years ago.
In there you?ll have the chance to set off in a time capsule where you?ll come across Norse speaking people, see their back yards and even experience smoke form the blacksmith?s furnace; and if that?s not enough, you?ll be hit with whiffs of home cooked stew inside the houses of the Vikings, making your experience ever more delightful. All this and more is offered at the Jorvik Viking Centre U.K and rich history can apparently be visited and relived, not just through a picture or depiction, but through something a little more authentic.
