York is a walled city of rich heritage situated at the confluence of the Rivers Ouse and Foss in North Yorkshire, England. With more than two millennia of existence, the city was founded by the pre-Roman Brythonic people and named Eborakon meaning "place of the yew trees", and later called Eboracum in 71 AD by the Romans who made it the capital of their Province of Britannia Inferior.
