Course Description

By the 1600s, the city of York had a Lord Mayor, Aldermen and Councils, it governed the Liberty of York and the Ainsty and was considered a county in its own right… but when and how did this happen? Can we trace the origins of the city government of York back to 1066 or even earlier? How did York gain its liberties and what were they? This course explores the origins of the Liberties of York and the intricate relationships between merchants, lawmen, guilds and mayors. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
