Contested Treasure: Jews and Authority in the Crown of Aragon By Thomas W. BartonWinner, Best First Book Award, Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies In Contested Treasure , Thomas Barton examines how the Jews in the Crown of Aragon in the twelfth through fourteenth centuries negotiated the overlapping jurisdictions and power relations of local lords and the crown. While many Jews were under direct royal authority, significant numbers of Jews also lived under nonroyal and seigniorial jurisdiction. Barton argues that royal authority over the Jews as well as Muslims was far more modest and contingent on local factors than is usually recognized. Contested Treasure refines and complicates our portrait of interfaith relations and the limits of royal authority in medieval Spain, and it presents a new approach to the study of ethnoreligious relations and administrative history in medieval European society. It is skillfully researched, thoughtful, carefully argued and solid in its conclusions.

Williams was invited to appear on television programmes around the globe and endorse products but refused to take part in what he called "that whole razzmatazz" and returned to a quiet life as a reclusive artist. He felt that as a result of Masquerade's success he was rejected as an artist by many. The original burial of the hare took place in in a park in Ampthill, Beds. Gascoigne poured a cowpat from a Tupperware box over the hole to disguise where it was laid.
