York Claims Emperor Constantine

More than a statue salutes the Roman Emperor Constantine in York, England. A major exhibit of treasures, including a sculpted marble head of the emperor, will be on display in the city until October 2006.

The exhibition celebrates Constantine's links to the city and to the establishment of the Christian religion. The culmination of the festivities will be on July 25, 2006 with the 1,700th anniversary of the proclamation of Constantine as emperor.
