In 1946 when he was making a living 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 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. A savage parable of innocence and greed, The Mildenhall Treasure was illustrated by Ralph in 1999 and published in hardback by Jonathan Cape and remain some of Ralph's richest and most atmospheric artworks.
