York Minster is a cathedral in York, England, and is one of the largest of its kind in Northern Europe. The first recorded building on this site was a wooden structure built in 627. The reason it was built was because they needed a place to baptize Edwin King of Northumbria. A stone structure was completed in 637 by Oswald.
The Shambles is a old street in York, England with overhanging buildings that was built as early as in the 14th century. It was once called the The Great Flesh Shambles. The flesh shelves are the butcher shelves that they they displayed meat. There once was 25 butcher shops among the shambles in 1872 but now there are none. Some places are so small that you can reach your arms out and touch both sides!
