Photographer's Note

I thought I would do a short series of alternating shots of York and New York at night, this is the first, a shot of the river embankment at York.

From the Net.

The Roman name for York was Eboracum and was based on a native British name for the ancient site.
It is thought the name was an Ancient British personal name and suggests that the site was founded by someone called Eburos.
An another view holds that the name is based on the Ancient British word Eburos meaning Yew, a sacred Celtic tree from which the personal name Eburos comes from.
There was a Gaulish tribe called the Eburorovices, who were the ‘Warriors of the Yew Tree’.
