Meet Eric Bloodaxe, the last Viking King of York and a rather colourful figure.
The son of Harald Finehair, King of Norway, Eric earned his nickname by murdering several of his brothers in order to secure his succession to the Norwegian throne.
You will get to meet the barbarian Eric, a murderous tyrant whose savagery was shocking, even by Viking standards! The English King Eadred responded and now you find yourself under attack as the Viking and the Saxon armies turn on one another in the Anglo-Saxon invasion on the Vikings.
A very special video technique is being used to create the effect of the Eric Bloodaxe's talking head. Images are projected on the cast of an actual head of an actor. These images are filmed while the actor's head is secured so that it won't move.
The actor is reliant on his or her facial impression to deliver the best effects of the story. The projections and the cast create the perfect optical illusion special effects you would never get in a museum!

“The York Dungeons were amazing, very funny and very scary! The Actors were AMAZING and they really got into their character! The sound effects, lighting and sets were AMAZING especially in the witches burned alive section. Overall I really enjoyed my visit to the York Dungeons and learned a lot about York's Horrible History! I encourage anyone who has not visited the York Dungeons to go because you are really missing out on this brilliant attraction!!”Harriet See more reviews...
