Wharram Percy was founded in the Bronze Age, occupied and re-modelled by the Romans and lived in by Vikings, Anglo-Saxons and Normans.

Yet, at some point in the 16th century, it was suddenly abandoned.

And ever since the site was discovered in 1851 by Captain Bayly, who was surveying the area for the Ordnance Survey, people have been wondering why.
