    York is a city almost 2000 years old, founded when the Roman 9th Legion built their fortress on the north-east bank of the river Ouse sometime around AD71. The legion were sent north from Lincoln to rescue Queen Cartimandua of the local British tribe, the Brigantes, from the forces of her former husband, an enemy of Rome.
