With archaeology and education at its core, the York Archaeological Trust has developed its attractions over the last 30 years to include some of the best and well-known, accredited visitor experiences in the UK; the most famous being JORVIK Viking Centre which has now received over 17 million visitors since opening in 1984. Welcoming over 500,000 visitors a year from all over the world to its attractions, including 40,000 school children, the Trust uses income generated through admission fees and gift aid to reinvest into all aspects of the Trust’s work and to help fund future archaeological activity.
