Famous treasure hunt book… that caused a sensation at the time of publication, and then a minor scandal as it was alleged that the treasure was found using insider information and metal detectors –
instead of solving the puzzle. The treasure – a gold hare -was later sold at auction by Sotheby’s for over £30,000 to an anonymous bidder. It was eventually displayed at the V&A in 2012.
