York is a beautiful place to visit. It is so much fun that you think you are walking though the pages of a story book. You can find a hat fit for a princess, and visit the archeological viking digging site and see where the Kingdom of York actually all began! You can peek through a window down a narrow alley and see a table set for a medieval feast. You can visit the Golden Fleece Pub and have something to eat while you watch and hear stories of the ghosts the owner says still reside in that place. And you can even take a ghost tour! This once walled city kingdom is a fascinating place to visit, and there is so much you can learn and do while you are having fun! Use the pages of this book as a beginning and see how many more things you can find to see and do in the city of York, then add some notes, tickets, pictures and postcards of your own to the pages of this book! The Kingdom of Jórvík or Kingdom of York, is the name used by historians when they refer to the kingdom of Northumbria, as it existed in the late 9th century and first half of the 10th century, dominated by Norse warrior-kings! York was the centre of Scandinavian power and rule in the British isles. The name Jórvík is the Scandinavianisation of Eoforwic, the Old English name for the 10th century Northumbria's capital, now known as York. As you can see there is much to see, learn and do in York as you peek through the town with award inning author, attorney and former teacher Penelope Dyan and photographer John D. Weigand, looking through more than just one window into the past! And please do not forget to take your imagination with you! There is also a video on the YouTube Bellissimavideo Channel that goes along with this book.
