Do not trouble a dragon guarding his treasure. That has always been the rule, unless you were a brave knight fixing for the battle of your life. Through out history there have been tales of great hoards of treasure guarded by deadly dragons. Sigurd and Fafnir, Beowulf and his last opponent the fire breathing dragon to name just two. But what is it that draws them to treasure? Are they just magpies of the large scaly variety? Do they use their hoards to attract mates? One thing is certain, dragons like shiny things and are always on the look out for new acquisitions.

Though I really would like to have a good proper look at a modern day dragon’s den. I have heard reports of farmers discovering “Sink holes” with small fortunes of coins and other odds and ends of value revealed to be inside.That sounds like a dragons den to me! I must see If I can investigate such a find.
