Bamber Gascoigne, once a familiar figure on British TV screens, has invited Mark Wallis to visit the gorgeous but crumbling country mansion he’s inherited. Gascoigne has a red velvet bag that he wants Wallis, an expert on historical costumes, to see. And Wallis is astonished by the artifact. He believes it dates from the 17th century, in fact, and that it might once have belonged to the wife of Sir Walter Raleigh.
