Artefacts found in a north-east archaeological project which has spanned the past 10 years will go on exhibition this week.
The Book of Deer Project, a community-led initiative, has commissioned archaeological digs in a bid to find the site of the monastery where the Book of Deer was written in the north-east.
The 10th-Century text includes Gaelic writings among the Latin and has Celtic illuminations.
It is widely believed to be the oldest evidence of Gaelic writing from early Medieval times and was written in a monastery around the Deer area.
Throughout the years, a number of different items have been uncovered by the archaeological team. However there is still no sign of the monastery.
Examples of finds include a Hnefatafl game board, pieces of materials such as slate, iron, metal and glass, stones and medieval pottery.
The exhibition opens this Saturday and runs until October 28 at Aberdeenshire Farming Museum in Aden Country Park.
The open day takes place on October 20, giving members of the public the opportunity to meet the people behind the project.
There will also be a talk by archaeologist Ali Cameron at 2.30pm.

A spokeswoman for Aberdeenshire Council said: “The exhibition is a great opportunity to see the results of this project to date, including some of the recent finds.
“The gaming board is a particularly exciting discovery as it opens up a window on everyday life 1,300 years ago.
“It’s easy to forget that behind the artefacts lie stories of everyday people who occasionally did remarkable things, such as writing the Book of Deer.”
A crowdfunding page set up to support the continued search has so far raised £240 of its £2,000 target.
