Vera Seaton Releases 'The Saga of the Middleham Jewel'


A rare metal-detector discovery changes the lives of one family forever in the new memoir by author Vera Seaton, "The Saga of the Middleham Jewel" (published by AuthorHouse).

The story starts in Barnard Castle in an antique shop called The Mudlark, where Vera Seaton and her husband, Ted, made their home post-1970. With a young daughter to look after, the couple became self-employed as purveyors of The Mudlark.

As a natural-born investigator, Ted had always been interested in metal detecting. He walked the countryside using his self-proclaimed psychic abilities to unearth new treasures from the soil. On one of his investigative metal-detecting trips, he stumbled upon a gem known as the Middleham Jewel.

After the jewel was appraised and deemed to not be a treasure trove, its mere presence and mystery changed the lives of the family forever.

Through this intimate look at one family's disappointments and discoveries, Vera Seaton crafts an entertaining look into family life, business ownership and historic preservation.
