About Us

IMAG0747

Jorvikingi is the name of our small group of enthusiasts dedicated to recreating, through living history; experimental archaeology; common sense; and crude jokes, the crafts, combat, appearance, and experiences of the people living in York in the 10th century, be they Danes, Norwegians, Anglians, Saxons, Scots, Irish, or native Britons. The name is derived from the Scandinavian term for York: Jorvik, and the Scandinavian -ingi suffix, commonly used to create a noun denoting a person/people with the characteristics of a place.

In short; we are the ‘people of Jorvik’

The group is based at the Murton Park Museum of Farming, at Murton, just outside York, and has been going there and maintaining some of the buildings since 2003, though some of its members have been visiting Murton since for over 15 years.

We are a small group that does not actively recruit, and aspires to maintain a ‘photograph’ level authenticity for the duration of our events.

We hope you enjoy visiting our site.
