The Anglian, or Anglo-Saxon, period is the least well-understood period of York’s history. Written sources describe an important ecclesiastical centre, a seat of governance, a place of scholarship and learning, a commercial entrepot and a draw for ‘divers peoples,’ but physical evidence has been hard to find.

Join Ailsa Mainman as she discusses her recent book, Anglian York, which pulls together the archaeological evidence for this elusive period and provides a glimpse into the lives of people who dwelt in York in the centuries between the departure of the Romans and the arrival of the Vikings.
