VIKINGS in York are offering help to schools during the lockdown.

The Jorvik Viking Centre will be providing a free week of online activities and livestreams from February 8 to 12.

A spokesperson said the livestreamed sessions will be hosted daily at 10am and 2pm throughout the week, with pupils able to watch from home on a dedicated website. "School pupils will also be the first to see a world-first – a 360 degree virtual visit to the recreated Viking-age streets of Coppergate that form part of the visitor attraction,"they added.
