Spent an afternoon in this historic city that was founded by the Romans who called it Eboracum. The Saxon name for the city was Eoforwic. When the Vikings settled in York, they clearly had trouble saying the Saxon name for the city: Eoforwic (which is thought to mean wild boar settlement), so decided to call it Jorvik (thought to mean wild boar creek). After that timeline of names, I can’t find the transition of the city name from Jorvic to York. Nevertheless, this city is now called York. Enjoy some of the photos I took in while walking around the Roman City Wall.
