In the late 1960s, York Minster was in imminent danger of collapse. By means of extensive engineering the building was saved, and, in a campaign of archaeological excavation, the opportunity was taken to retrieve years of little-known history from beneath the floors. Underneath was found the headquarters of the Roman legionary fortress which was subjected to numerous modifications, both subtle and drastic, over a span of a 1000 years. This sequence of history closed in AD 1070 with the construction of the Norman Cathedral of Archbishop Thomas of Bayeux. The historical evidence contained in this text offers a detailed account of social, economic and ideological change in a place favoured by Roman, Anglian, Viking and Norman invaders.
