York's World Heritage Bid gathers pace

York's World Heritage Bid gathers pace

5:39pm 10th June 2010

Could York be a World Heritage Site?

You might think that because of local historic landmarks, like the Minster and the Bar Walls, it's a foregone conclusion.

York's archaeological background is leading the application.
