Originally called Eburos by the Romans (which is commonly believed to have something to do with a yew tree), the name was corrupted in the 6th century by the newly arrived Anglo-Saxons into "Eoforwic" meaning "wild boar settlement", because apparently the Anglo-Saxons had some difficulty distinguishing trees from pigs. Then the Danes took over, and then some Norwegian Irish Vikings, and by medieval times the name York was finally used, although some people insisted on calling it Yerk.

York Minster, famous for its pointed arches and luxurious decoration, had its origins in 627 AD when King Edwin of Northumbria was baptised on its site. The Norman cathedral was started in 1070 by the Archbishop of York, and the current Gothic church was built starting in 1220 and finally completed and consecrated in 1472. It has the highest proportion of Medieval stained glass of any cathedral in Europe.

There is not that much recorded history of the Punchbowl itself. We do know It was a meeting place for the Whigs (political party, origin of the Liberals) who drank punch, hence the name. The Tories preferred port and red wines. It has been licensed continuously since 1761, so it is the fifth oldest pub in York. It was the HQ of the York Race Committee and the resort of York Minster bell-ringers in the 18th century.

Due to the small number of people in attendence, the investigation would be split into 2 parts, simple, upstairs and downstairs.

This Investigation was in York. The locations upstairs especially the unused bedroom no body liked to go in there at all especially alone.
We Investigated the top rooms and the bar area.

Lots of spirits were found on this investigation. Shame we had to pay for them though.
