Backyard Treasure

As a traveler I admit I’ve been places – tropical ones, mostly – where I looked around,
tried to find a secluded spot, and then randomly started to dig. Dig for a while here, go over there and dig. What was
I looking for? Well, treasure, of course. Just saying the phrase “buried treasure” kind of gets me giddy.

Well, a group of friends in Methuen, Mass., were digging up a bush and discovered buried treasure in their
yard. Their shovels hit a wooden box and inside were more than 1,800 antique dollar bills, as well as gold
and silver bank certificates. One of the guys, Barry VillCliff,
talks on NPR about the find.
