Jorvik was fascinating! I wasn't too sure what to expect, especially when we were lead down to what seemed like the basement and got into little car type things like at an amusement park. Well it turns out those cool little "cars" take you back into time to the 10th century in the middle of a bustling Viking village complete with sounds and smells from the time, making it realistic and sometimes unpleasant (fish market anyone?!) This site was discovered when archaeologists started digging under an old sweets factory and due to the conditions present (think spongy, peat bog)artifacts were preserved like wood, leather and even the contents of a Viking toilet! It's a truly fascinating place. When at last you've seen it all you disembark at an activity center where you can experience that time period and you can even write you name in Saxon! It was complete fun and I recommend it to everyone!!!
