York Archaeological Trust’s other attractions are:
Grab a trowel and dig to see what you can find in DIG’s specially designed excavation pits. Rediscover some of the amazing finds that archaeologists have uncovered under the streets of York. Touch real artefacts and work out what they would have been used for and understand how these finds explain how people lived in Roman, Viking, medieval and Victorian times.
For more information on DIG please visit the DIG website.
Barley Hall is a stunning medieval townhouse once home to the Priors of Nostell and Mayor of York. Rediscovered in the 1980′s under a relatively modern facade, the building has been lovingly restored to its original splendour with stunning high ceilings, beautiful exposed timber frames and boasts a magnificent Great Hall.
For more information on Barley Hall please visit the Barley Hall website.
As York’s most important gateway, the bar has served a number of important roles since its construction in the 12th century, including being the main point of entry through which a reigning monarch enters the city. Visit the ancient gateway to explore the pageantry and barbaric history that has unfolded between these walls through the centuries.
