The new Undercroft at York Minster tells the story of the building's 2000 year history from the days of the Romans to the present. The contemporary chambers which now fill the below-ground area use the space which dug out during emergency excavations in the 1970s to shore up the susbiding tower.
The team behind the new exhibition describe it as an immersive and interactive journey featuring artefacts never before on public display that will allow visitors to see, touch and hear the building's history.
The land upon which the cathedral now stands has been a centre, military, political, social and theological [for centuries], influencing not only regional but national history. For the first time, 'Revealing York Minster' brings together the archaeological discoveries and the written archives, dating back to the 7th Century. It will provide visitors with an insight into the evolution of the city and York Minster's central role within that, right up to the present day with a glimpse at the people who work being the scenes, making use of the very latest technology.
