York in the 1970s

    By

    This is the third volume in a unique and exciting series on the modern history of York. With the dawning of the 1970s the city underwent seismic changes that saw it become one of Europe's foremost historical and cultural cities. Tourism had come to stay, with such major events as the pedestrianisation of Stonegate, the opening of the world-famous National Railway Museum, the momentous excavations in Coppergate, which paved the way for the celebrated Jorvik Viking Centre, and the opening of the Minster undercroft to the public. Join Paul Chrystal as he describes and depicts all of these and many more fascinating details about York during this pivotal decade in the city's splendid history.
