The research programme that followed the major `Viking Dig’ at 16-22 Coppergate, York, is virtually complete and published in previous volumes of The Archaeology of York series. The ten chapters in this book, each written by a specialist, place the Coppergate discoveries within the wider context of Viking Yorvik whilst demonstrating `how far the study of Anglo-Scandinavian York has progressed in the last quarter century’ since the `Viking Dig’.
