Photos from Yorkshire, the White Rose County

York was founded as the Roman fortress of Eboracum. After they left, small Celtic kingdoms arose in Yorkshire until the Angles expelled the last Celtic king in the early 7th Century and revived Eboracum as the Anglo-Saxon trading port of Eoforwic. The Danes conquered it and renamed it Jórvík, from which today's name York is derived. The County is one of the greenest in England, thanks to the vast stretches of unspoiled beautiful countryside in the Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire Moors.
