When the Vikings came to York they changed the Anglo-Saxon name Eoforwic to 'Jorvik' and during their hundred year stay, they turned it into a thriving trading post. Ivar the Boneless took York in 866. In 954 the last Viking king, Eric Bloodaxe, was expelled from York and it was re-absorbed into Anglo-Saxon England. The coinage varied widely with influences from the Christian church as well as the English kings and Scandinavian imagery.
