In the long hot summer of 1939, Britain is preparing for war. But on a riverside farm in Suffolk there is the excitement of another kind: Mrs. Petty, the widowed farmer, has had her hunch proved correct that the strange mounds on her land hold buried treasure. As the dig proceeds against a background of mounting national anxiety, it becomes clear that this is no ordinary find...
John Preston's recreation of the Sutton Hoo dig - the greatest Anglo-Saxon discovery ever in Britain - brilliantly and comically dramatizes three months of intense activity when locals fought outsiders, professionals thwarted amateurs, and love and rivalry flourished in equal measure.

How did a man who had once laid such store on the importance of ethics and good behaviour become reduced to a bloated, amoral wreck? 'Preston is a natural storyteller' The Times
