This statue has been erected to mark the fact that the Emperor Constantine, one of the greatest of the Roman leaders was crowned here in York (Eboracum). You will see it when you visit the Minster.

Iconic. As the very place where the legendary Constantine was hailed Roman emperor (highest political position in the Western world at the time, so ruler of the known world), this statue commemorates a historical moment that marks York out. It is also spiritual as it...More

Roman Emperor Constantine the Great was crowned in York in 306 AD and ruled the Empire for another 31 years. The statue sits in the Minster Yard and is another reminder of York's long history & Roman occupation.

This is a great little statue that you might miss while you're gazing up at the amazing Minster. Worth finding out, Part of York's amazing history.

A very pleasant statue in a very good location in front of the minster. Much more impressive than the column opposite it.
