Yorking

If you are interested in medieval history, York is top ten all time. The city walls are built on Roman foundations. The Romans arrived in 71 AD and finished their wall around 200 years later.

Only the top third or so was built after the Romans left, the rest is almost 2000 years old.

I attended about 2/3 of a Catholic mass in this cathedral. It evolved a lot of standing then sitting. The choral music was phenomenal.

The York museum had this gorgeous 1100 year old helm. I had no words.

The museum also had a dodo.
