Re-enactors representing the Vikings attend the Jorvik Viking Festival on February 23, 2019 in York, England.
The annual Jorvik Viking Festival held in York is recognised as the largest event of its kind in Europe. This year the festival remembers the role that the Viking women played during those turbulent times.
The festival is a city-wide celebration of York’s rich Norse heritage and commemorates a seminal moment in British history, the arrival and conquest of England by the Viking Army in AD 866. A programme of events such as living history encampments, walks, talks, tours and combat performances entertain and educate visitors to the festival.
