York—Vikings and Merchants
Lecture no. 8 from the course: The Great Tours: Experiencing Medieval Europe
Taught by Professor Kenneth R. Bartlett | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Travel Courses
Taste medieval life in York’s “ginnels,” narrow passageways offering shortcuts through the town, and in the Barley Hall mansion and Merchant Adventurers’ Hall, with their views into the lives of wealthy citizens. Delve into the Viking and Norman history of York, and the latter era’s dark side in its treatment of Jews.
