What Is Campaign Canute?


Campaign Canute was the fundraising campaign born out of the devastation to JORVIK Viking Centre following the flooding that affected York at Christmas, 2015, which raised over £1.5 million to re-imagine JORVIK and re-open the Viking Centre at Easter 2017, with generous donations from Trusts, organisations, and individuals.

You can discover more of the severity of the flood damage and the results of the re-imagining on the JORVIK Viking Centre website.

The work of Campaign Canute goes on, raising funds to help York Archaeological Trust continue to build and enhance public engagement and develop programmes, including virtual and digital access, around the collections, stories and ongoing research.
