This weekend just gone, Verb and I went into York Minster for the first time (as I found out that this is free for York residents/students, so I was incredibly happy, and intend to use/abuse this privilege as often as possible). As a fan of church architecture I can say it was just as awesome as Lincoln Cathedral (a tad more explore-able too). I also discovered the name of my college, Alcuin, is a reference to a scholar/teacher living in York during the 700s/800s. There have been Roman remains excavated under the cathedral, which we also had a look at. Personally, I found the remains of pigs' jaws left over from feasts most interesting.
