One of the oldest cities in the north east of England, the settlement of York dates back to around 8000BC, but the city itself was founded by the Romans in AD71. Considered so important, it was declared capital of Britannia Inferior or the north of England by the Emperor Severus. Modern York is a thriving UK city of nearly 200,000 people with a diverse range of industries, such as telecommunication, IT, finance and developing scientific innovation.
