    • Abstract:
      The article focuses on the discovery of a long-buried set of Roman silver by English plowman Gordon Butcher. He makes a living by plowing other men's fields and gathering other men's harvests using his tractor. Together with another man who asked him to plow a land for him unearthed no less than thirty-three separate pieces of items consisting of dishes, bowls, goblets and spoons.
