The excavation pits

Jorvik Dig features four indoor excavation pits filled with synthetic soil, so you can get involved without getting mucky. Receive trowels and tools and, under the instruction of a guide, attempt to unearth replica Roman, Viking, medieval, and Victorian finds. The pits are inspired by real archaeological sites, with the medieval pit based upon the cemetery uncovered at the Gilbertine Priory of St. Andrew at Fishergate. The Victorian pit is modeled on a house that once stood on York’s Dundas Street.
