Archaeologists find Viking Norwich

Archaeologists working in Norwich, England have discovered city walls dating back to Viking times. “Our finding gives us the old geography of the city and lets us look at the history of the defensive mechanisms used in Norwich at the time," said Andy Hutcheson, archaeology manager for NAU Archaeology.

The research team plans to expand its investigation past the oldest, 10th century Viking-era site and into a later, medieval site. Mr Hutcheson said: “Pitt Street falls outside the very early town and into the medieval expansion area of the town, so we expect to find evidence of 12th and 13th century industrial activity.”
