Some of the world's most significant Anglo-Saxon artefacts have gone on display, including the 1,300-year-old coffin of St Cuthbert.
The exhibition at Durham Cathedral, called The Treasures of St Cuthbert, offers an insight into the life of the famous saint.
It includes his wooden coffin, built in 698 and recovered after his tomb was opened in 1827. It still has visible images of Jesus and the apostles on the oak fragments.
On display in Open Treasure, the cathedral's multi-million pound exhibition experience, the collection also includes a gold and garnet pectoral cross, St Cuthbert's portable altar and an ivory comb.
The opening follows a year of environmental monitoring in the Great Kitchen, the area in Durham Cathedral in which The Treasures of St Cuthbert will be housed.
