The Curse of the Buried Treasure

“Two metal-detector enthusiasts discovered a Viking hoard. It was worth a fortune—but it became a nightmare.”

This story by Rebecca Mead appeared in the New Yorker magazine of November 2020. Did you see it? No, I didn’t either, but here’s your chance.

Be warned, this is a long, interesting but compelling read. So, settle down with your favourite drink and be prepared to be amazed … or not!

The golden ring found by Powell and Davies was later confirmed to be a rare example of Anglo-Saxon jewelry from the ninth century. It is currently on display at the British Museum. Photograph courtesy © the Trustees of the British Museum
