MEDIEVAL traders headed to York’s Parliament Street for a market with a difference.

The medieval market is an extension of the continental market which periodically visits York, and has been running alongside the city’s Viking Festival this week.

The market features people in medieval costume demonstrating Viking arts and crafts.

Visitors can experience authentic medieval trading until the last day of the market today.
