In one of our fields there is a little high hill and it is said that there is a pot of gold hidden under a big flag in it. Long ago a group of men went to get it, they came to the flag and when they lifted it up they saw a man and a big grey dog watching it. The dog barked and the man followed them with a sword. The men ran away from the place and the next morning it was found the same way as it had been before they stirred it.
