King's Manor :: Shared Description

King's Manor was initially built to house the abbots of the near by St. Mary's Abbey (see Link probably around the 11th century. The current building dates predominantly from the 15th century. In 1539 the abbey was dissolved and the King's Manor transferred to being the seat of the Council of the North and remained in this role until the council was abolished in 1641. The building spent the next few centuries being rented out to various occupants until the Yorkshire School for the Blind was formed in 1833 and took residence, restored and enlarged the building. They remained the occupiers until 1958 when it was transferred to the City of York Council who then gave it to the University of York in 1963 as their first building.
King's Manor is now home to the Department of Archaeology, and parts of the History Department (Centre for 18th Century Studies and Centre for Medieval Studies.
