Wharram Percy

The Lost Medieval Village

Wharram Percy, located in Yorkshire, has been occupied by humans since the Iron Age. Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings, Normans -- all have lived out their lives in this high-wold village. As an archeological site, it was one of the most important peasant digs in England.

Here you will see St. Martin's parish church, peasant house sites, and the Norman manor house.
