Ever since its establishment in 71 AD, York has been the site of savage warfare, intense political intrigue and industrial breakthrough. It was here that Constantine, who would shake Europe to its core by converting Rome to Christianity, became Roman Emperor. It was here that Richard III, later immortalised by Shakespeare, plotted his campaigns during the Wars of the Roses. York is the birthplace, too, of Guy Fawkes, the greatest traitor in England’s history!
