Standing at 5.2m tall, the Ruthwell Cross has been described as the most important sculptural survival of Anglo-Saxon Britain. It was carved in the early 700s, when this part of Scotland lay within the Anglian kingdom of Northumbria.
The cross was probably used as a preaching cross – a focus to help priests bring the Christian gospel to their flock.
