On Wednesday and Thursday this week, two groups of Year 10 History students visited the historic walled city of York.
The students visited Clifford’s Tower (the castle), Jorvik Viking Centre, and York Minster. They also took a wander through the world famous Shambles.
York has a rich heritage and has provided the backdrop to major political events in England throughout much of its two millennia of existence. Founded by the Romans as Eboracum in 71 AD, it became the capital of the Roman province of Britannia Inferior.
In the Middle Ages York grew as a major wool trading centre and became the capital of the northern ecclesiastical province of the Church of England.
History teacher Mrs Hubbert commented:
“The students were absolutely amazing! It was a real privilege to take such incredibly well behaved students out on a trip.”
