Jorvik was the name of the city when it was home of the viking Danes that arrived in 867 AD. Visitors can learn about them at Jorvik Viking Centre. This interesting archeological museum displays objects from the 10th century found in excavations on the site. A Disneyland-type cart ride shows every aspect of life back then, with sounds and smells.
