In 1946, when he was making a living by writing fiction for American magazines, Roald Dahl wrote a true story called THE MILDENHALL TREASURE. It tells how Gordon Butcher, a Suffolk ploughman, uncovered the greatest treasure ever found in the British Isles, a horde of Roman silver of unparalled beauty and value. And how, not appreciating what he had discovered, he was cheated out of the fortune that should have been his. A savage parable of innocence and greed, THE MILDENHALL TREASURE is now republished, superbly illustrated by Ralph Steadman.
