Masons who built Durham Cathedral were the first in Europe to have the skill and courage to throw a full stone roof over a large choir and nave (1093-1133), and to do so they invented ribbed vaulting (and also concealed flying buttresses). The testing nature of such developments was underlined later by the collapse of the choir roof (the earliest section ever built).
