Try your hand at a staple craft of the Viking home with our beginners’ spinning kit and interactive crafting discussion.

Spinning plant and animal fibres would have been an unending task for York’s Viking settlers, due to the vast quantities of thread are required in order to weave fabric. Finds related to fibre preparation and thread production were found in the world-famous Coppergate Dig in large quantities and far outnumber the finds which relate to fabric production, suggesting spinning was a task at the heart of daily life for our past Viking residents.

The price includes a kit delivered to your home (UK addresses only) with a drop spindle and a selection of traditional wool samples to turn into your very own yarn, following along with the enclosed pamphlet and exclusive instructional video content.


Then, join Erin and Jenni (aka Arnleif and Ermingard) for a fascinating look at the tools and techniques used to prepare and produce yarns at Coppergate, with a chance to ask your own questions about the evidence for exploring this absorbing Viking craft.

One Thing After Another: assemblies and assembly-places in the Viking world

In a year when meetings and assemblies of all sorts have been postponed and cancelled, this year's Richard Hall Symposium moves online to consider the thing, the Viking-era public gathering for making political decisions, settling disputes and upholding laws.  The symposium is part of the first ever That JORVIK Viking Thing, an accessible programme of digital activity with a focus on the Viking past for audiences of all kinds.

Our four plenary speakers will consider sites across the Viking world, including Govan's Doomster Hill, the Dublin Thingmotte, Tynwald Hill on the Isle of Man, and thing sites in the Viking homelands of Scandinavia. Authority, representation and democracy will all come under the spotlight in what promises to be a fascinating and informative assembly in the digital realm.

Frode Iversen, University of Oslo - The Thing in Scandinavia

Edmund Southworth, Manx National Heritage - Tynwald Hill

Stephen Driscoll, University of Glasgow - Imperial Influences on Royal Assembly and Ceremony in Scotland, 800-1100

This presentation will reflect on the recent investigations at the Pictish royal centres at Forteviot and Scone, associated with the Gaelic kingdom of Alba. The archaeology relating to the political developments in east central Scotland will be used to illuminate the contemporary developments at Govan, the royal focus of the British kingdom of Strathclyde. In both cases sculpture contributes significantly to our understanding of these sites.

Stephen Harrison, University of Glasgow - From Dublin to York - Rethinking the Viking Connection

York and Dublin have long been regarded as the two most important urban centres in the Viking West, with close political, social and economic links. This paper will present some of the latest findings from and about Viking-Age Dublin - including its Thingmotte - to a York-based audience and will introduce the recently announced AHRC funded 'York-Dublin axis project', which seeks to strengthen connections between the two settlements  

A symposium ticket includes access to all of the lectures that are being streamed live on Friday 19 February, with the option to watch the recorded versions of the lectures for seven days after the event (accessibly until 6.00pm on Saturday 27 February 2021).
