A hoard of viking treasure has been found by a metal detector enthusiast in Dumfries and Galloway.
The collection, described as the largest viking hoard found in modern history, was discovered at an undisclosed location on Church land.
It was found by 47-year-old Derek McLennan, who has searched the area with a metal detector for the past year.
The find includes an early Christian cross, thought to be from the ninth or tenth century, and what is possibly the largest silver Carolingian pot ever to be discovered.
The hoard is currently in the care of The Treasure Trove Unit.
