Much information about writer Agatha Christie has been uncovered over the past few weeks, from her love of surfing to a riveting discovery made in England reported just yesterday.

BBC's Steve Knibbs reported that Clive Payne, an antique furniture restorer in England, found a rare piece of theatrical history while taking apart an 18th century bureau that had sat untouched in his storeroom for three years. Upon searching the drawers of the bureau, Payne discovered a telegram dated 1957 from English playwright Noël Coward to Agatha Christie.
