In 1946, when he was making a living writing fiction for American magazines, Roald Dahl wrote this true story. It tells how Gordon Burcher, a ploughman from Suffolk in England, uncovered the greatest treature ever found in the British Isles, a hoard of Roman silver of unparalleled beauty and value. And how, not appreciating what he had discovered, he was cheated out of the fortune that should have been his. [from roalddahl.com]
