Hungate Open Day

The Hungate excavations carried out by York Archaeological Trust (YAT) are the largest ever archaeological excavations in York. Discover the amazing stories this site yielded when you visit for our special open day.

The excavation team will be on hand during the day to explain what they have found, show some of the finds from the dig and answer questions about the archaeology they have encountered.

The History of Hungate

The original Hungate was formed over 1000 years ago, during the Viking period and excavations have given YAT the opportunity to investigate how a street that was first laid out as part of Jorvik (Viking-age York) has developed over more recent centuries. Prior to building works, YAT have been busy working on part of the site, investigating the past chapters of the area as a new chapter is written.

The site is located at the bottom of Hungate, at the junction of Palmer Lane and Carmelite Street, immediately adjacent to York St. John Central. Parking is available nearby, and the event is free to attend.
