This was my first encounter with the Vikings on Saturday. Came across the marching up The Shambles at 8am.
Crooked refers to the age, shape and architectural style of The Shambles.
The shambles is the best preserved medieval street in Europe. The 15th century buildings almost touch at their tops in places, allowing people in the top windows to touch hands. The street is also mentioned in the Doomsday Book some 900+ yrs ago.
Help, the Vikings are coming:
