The Silver Mystery

Martin Widmark, illustrated by Helena Willis

There is a lot of excavation work going on outside Valleby church. For two weeks, archaeologist Sofia Winge and her as- sistant have been frantically digging to see if they can find anything valuable in the earth. On the last day of the excavation they finally find something: masses of silver coins that are probably from the Viking Age.

That evening, the archaeologist and her assistant hold a talk about the sensational find. Many curious residents of Valleby come to listen and to learn more about archaeology. The next day they notice that there have been
trespassers. Nothing appears to have been stolen, but there are lots of footprints in the damp soil, and one of them is the same size as the priest’s feet, whose boots had just been stolen.
