Lawes discovers the Hoxne hoard near the village of Hoxne in Suffolk, using a metal detector that his colleagues give him when he retired. While helping the farmer look for a lump hammer that had been dropped in a field near the village, he finds silver spoons, gold jewelry and numerous gold and silver coins. After retrieving a few items, he notifies the landowners and the police.
