Our next talk will be held on Wednesday, 26th August, 2020 at 7pm on Zoom.

Bookings for this event on Zoom will be made available on Eventbrite.

The talk, entitled “Vikings in Yorkshire”, will be given by Professor Joyce Hill.

The Vikings came to Yorkshire as invaders, and remained as settlers. We can see evidence of their presence in surviving artefacts and they live with us still through our place-names, street-names and everyday language. This illustrated talk will set the scene historically, and will then go on to explore some of these local signs of their presence, including recent finds such as the Vale of York Hoard, earlier finds from the Coppergate Dig, and the eventual integration of the Vikings’ descendants in Christian Anglo-Saxon society as evidenced in church monuments and buildings.
