The Yorkshire Museum

The Yorkshire Museum is home to some of Britain's finest archaeological treasures and the history of England until 1550 can be traced through its galleries. It also specialises in geology and biology and its rocks, fossils, animal and plant materials are often used in special exhibitions.

Many of the archaeological objects were discovered in the region and reflect York's changing identity under different invaders as Eboracum (Roman York), Eoforwic (Anglo Saxon York) and Jorvik (Viking York).

Visitors can travel through these different periods, and see items from ordinary people's everyday life as well as treasures owned by the very rich. Highlights include the Middleham Jewel and Ring, the Ormside Bowl and the York Helmet.
