Shaking Hands with the Past – Vodcasts from Jorvik

Posted on 01/Jun/2017 Under News

As part of ‘Finding the Future‘, York Archaeological Trust’s Resilience Project, they have produced a series of vodcasts entitled ‘Shaking Hands with the Past’ specifically for the schools’ audience.

Each of these presentations features one of their unique artefacts and explains their use, construction and history in easily understood terms and with the help of a friendly local Viking!

These vodcasts can be used by teachers, parents and pupils to help bring alive the topic of living in Viking times.

YAT intend to create a complete series of similar presentations and include objects from different historical periods in the York collection.

All of the Vodcasts can be found at
