Insight offered into history site
The biggest urban archaeological excavation in York in more than 25 years has been opened to the public.

Visitors to the site in the Hungate area of the city were given chance to speak to archaeologists about the dig and see items already unearthed.

Organisers said the dig offered people an insight into life in the Victorian era and how rich or poor residents of the area were.

The site was opened on Wednesday to celebrate Yorkshire Day.
