Mr Monkey went around the back of Fairfax House, decided that the front looked better, then scurried along to Coppergate. He made his humans buy tickets for the Jorvik Viking Centre, then went down into the basement under their rather plain building. Surprisingly for a 21st century basement it's full of Viking houses, merchants, tradesmen and women, children, animals and stenches, and he wasn't allowed to take pictures.
You can read about the Centre at the Jorvik Viking Centre website.
