Noble Friends,

Today the BBC is reporting Durham Cathedral has just opened a display 
featuring St. Cuthbert's coffin, as well as his pectoral cross and comb, 
plus other Anglo-Saxon artifacts. Cuthbert died in 687. St. Cuthbert is 
one of the most important and beloved Anglo-Saxon saints:

Cuthbert's coffin, try this Wikipedia site:

sketch on St. Cuthbert can be found at

The BBC offered another story on Durham Cathedral's fascinating history 
earlier this year; http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-tyne-39288707 .

The Cathedral's own web site offers many interesting photos and stories:
