The Romans called it Eboracum, the Anglo-Saxons, Eoforwick. For the Vikings, it was Jorvik, and for the Normans, York. This module will study York’s history from its establishment as a Roman town, through its Anglo-Saxon and Viking days, its medieval and Tudor times, its role during the Civil War and its Georgian and Victorian times. The module will also examine the changes and continuities during the twentieth century, analysing the social, political, and cultural forces that have shaped the city.
