Medieval York: Capital of the North
This exciting new display showcases the Yorkshire Museum’s permanent collection of the region’s greatest surviving treasures.
Make a visit to ‘Medieval York: Capital of the North’ and explore how York became England’s second city and how its fortunes rose and fell with its ties to the Crown and the Church.
As the capital of religion, royal power, commerce, art, conflict and wealth across the Anglian, Viking, Norman, Medieval and Tudor periods, discover how the most powerful people in the world once ruled from within York’s City Walls.
Through the finest medieval discoveries ever unearthed, including the Middleham Jewel, the Escrick ring and a Richard III supporter’s Boar Badge, the latest metal detected finds and brand new research, this new display tells the only complete Medieval history of York in the city.
